It can’t be said enough: winter tires and careful driving are the only way to stay safe while travelling on snow and ice.
Even the best driver will ultimately fail to predict obstacles in some scenarios on the road, which is exactly what happened here. A Russian motorist, or at least a motorist who speaks Russian, catches footage of his own crash after swerving to avoid a couple of hitchhikers.
He is presumably trying to correct a skid that starts after the initial reaction, but ends up sliding right off the road. We hear him swearing in Russian just before the car rolls over and sustains significant damage including a smashed windshield. It doesn’t seem like anyone was seriously injured based on the footage.
