This is the shocking moment a driver speeding down a country road in Russia ploughs into a teen and her horse as they cross the road.

Horrific footage of the smash – filmed on the driver’s dashcam – shows the 14-year-old emerging from trees at the side of the road.

But as she starts to cross the highway, the driver apparently does not see her and hits her side on without even slowing down.
