This is the shocking moment a lorry hits a car in Moscow and flips over on top of it crushing it in a fatal crash that caused traffic chaos in the Russian capital.

The horrific accident was caught on CCTV cameras on a dual carriageway in the Russian capital city of Moscow.

Eyewitnesses claimed the lorry went through a red light at speed and then lost control as it swerved to try to avoid other vehicles.

It smashed into a white car which had been crossing the motorway and which ended up underneath the huge vehicle as it overturned.

The lorry then smashed through the central reservation as it rolled in the road, hitting a black car which had been waiting on the opposite carriageway.

A passenger of one of the cars died from head injuries before paramedics could reach the scene. At least one more person was rushed by ambulance to hospital with serious injuries.

The lorry, which had been carrying a load of rubble, ended up on its side in the middle of the motorway next to the two wrecked cars.

It took several hours to clear the roads following the accident which caused traffic chaos in the south-eastern part of the city.

Police have launched an investigation into the accident. There is no report on the condition of the lorry driver.

A traffic police spokesman said: "Police officers are working at the scene of the accident to find out the circumstances of what happened."

Netizen ‘Andrey Malygin’ said: "Lorry divers are reckless... I have seen so many drivers pretending to be Speedy Gonzalez in the night hours."

And ‘Mozhet’ added: "Maybe it is time to get things in order on the streets? Now it will turn out that the lorry driver did not have a licence."
