Dec. 13 (UPI) -- A Russian driver's dashboard camera captured the moment a large truck's tailgate busted open and dumped its load of metal pipes onto the road.
The video, filmed Friday on a road in Cheboksary, shows the truck traveling ahead of the filming car on a snowy road.
The slow-moving truck's tailgate suddenly bursts open, leading the following car to stop.
The car's driver turns out to have made a wise choice, as a load of large metal pipes then slid out of the now-open back of the truck and onto the road.
The car manages to steer around the truck after it stops with only a small handful of its pipes remaining in the cargo area and one pipe leaning precariously out the back.
