Dash Cam Footage Captures The Moment A UFO Caused A Car Accident In Russia

Imagine you're driving along and suddenly, out of the blue a UFO appears in the sky. What do you do? If you're the driver in this video, then you crash. Violently.

This astonishing dashcam footage shows an impressive pile up in Russia, but what it captures before the crash is far more interesting.

A small cylindrical object can be seen appearing in the sky above the cars and then flying over their heads. While the footage from the car's dashboard camera isn't great, there's no denying that it's mysterious in origin.

Even if it wasn't, it was baffling enough to distract the drivers in front who clearly weren't looking where they were going and promptly ended up wildly swerving to avoid and equally distracted driver coming the other way.

From huge eruptions of light prompting fears of a 'secret weapon' being tested by the Russian military to capturing the moment a meteor shattered all the windows in a town, this pesky little cameras have been proven to be far more useful at capturing the unexplained than they have protecting their driver's no claim bonus.
