A reverse-image search of one of the keyframes of the video took us to the same clip uploaded by Ruptly on June 17, 2020. “*DISTRESSING CONTENT* Russia: Fatal truck crash caught on CCTV in Chelyabinsk,” reads the title.
According to Khaleej Times, “On June 16, surveillance cameras on the M-5 Ural road in Chelyabinsk Province captured the moment the out of control truck was seen hurtling towards the halted traffic. The truck drives into the vehicles, crushing five cars. According to the provincial administration of internal affairs, the truck suffered brake failure and the driver could not control the vehicle following which the accident took place, reported RT news.”
