Whoops! Bungling tank driver loses control and crushes a pensioner’s car

This is the moment an out-of-control army tank crushed a pensioner’s car as it swung around a corner on a road in Belarus. Dramatic footage shows two war machines roaring on to the road in the city of Grodno in western Belarus.

But while the first successfully negotiated the corner, the second appeared to take the bend too sharply and swerved onto the wrong side of the carriageway before crushing a Volkswagen Polo waiting at a red light. The clip shows the vehicle’s roof on the driver’s side crumple under the tracks of the giant tank.



Incredibly, a pensioner and his grandson who were in the car managed to escape with just a few scratches. The pair were reportedly able to exit the car by themselves and waited by the side of the road for the emergency services to arrive.



The driver, who has not been named, told local media: ‘We were waiting, letting the military column pass, after they entered the road from a side road. ‘After a few tanks passed by, one started sliding and crashed into my car.’ There has been no official statement from the military about the accident.
