This is the moment a man in a wheelchair is sent flying by a car as he tries to push himself across the road “in the wrong place”.
The footage was shot in the Russian capital Moscow on New Arbat Avenue, which is a major street in Moscow, when the unnamed victim tried to cross the busy road.
Suddenly he is hit out of nowhere by a car with an ear-splitting crunch and is sent flying into the road.
A spokesman for Moscow police said: “A collision was made with a wheelchair user who crossed the road in the wrong place on New Arbat Avenue.”
It was not revealed why the disabled man, who has not been names and who was in the wheelchair because he only has one leg, had not chosen to find a pedestrian crossing to get over the road.
Local media reported that he was hospitalised but there were no details about his condition.
The driver who hit the wheelchair remained at the scene and was interviewed by cops, and the investigation is continuing.
