Meanwhile In Russia: A Truck Carrying Gas Tanks Crashes, They All Explode

Note: Nobody was killed in the accident so you can watch the fireworks show without feeling bad.

These are several videos of a truck in Russia transporting a load of gas canisters when it crashes and all the tanksl explode. I, for one, am never driving near a truck carrying anything again. I don't care if it's pillows, I'm taking the next exit. Also, somebody might want to give that 'How's my driving?' number on the back of the truck a call.

The crash ignited 36 tanks, which exploded -- and in some cases were propelled "like missiles" -- over a period of about ten minutes.

I love how it takes forever for anybody in the video to realize maybe being so close to a bunch of exploding gas tanks is a bad idea. Several people even GET OUT OF THEIR CARS TRYING TO CAPTURE BETTER FOOTAGE. Hardcore! Why didn't Russia win the space race? Because their balls were too f***ing heavy.

Hit the jump for a couple video of the most exciting commute ever. The first is a short video of the initial crash from two different dash-cams, the second is a longer video of the tanks continuing to explode long after the crash.

Thanks to Geoff, who would have been doing 45MPH in reverse by the time the first tank exploded.

    the only thing missing here is the crash, what the hell started this?

  • ben

    .....the crash in vid one!! he rear ends a bus

  • Ry Keener

    It still amazes me that dash cams are so prolific in Russia that this crash was caught by multiple drivers.

  • thePantz

    for insurance purposes, every Russian car is required by law to have a dash cam

  • Kane Harrison

    Absolute nonsense. It's to combat the corrupt police force who bribe people for money, just google it for the full story.

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    Them why we don't have cameras in... Oh wait! They aren't interesting in combat the rampant corruption there...

  • Kane Harrison

    Rule 1: never post whilst undereducated or drunk as there is a high possibility that your inept ramblings will make no sense whatsoever.

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    I was talking about certain countries even more corrupt than Russia that don't have cameras in their cars.

  • That guy who left his car and ran away will definitely be regretting the decision now!

  • Matthew

    I wonder if insurance covers - left car next to an explosion.

  • Pui Che

    wait, so by leaving your vehicle during the middle of a conflict voids any insurancy to your vehicle in the event of a conflict?

    or did the inb4 commentor meant a different kind of regret?

  • wastedkitten

    No, lol
    You're able to leave you're vehicle if your life is at risk

  • Vlad

    Damn buses
