Interesting that  it was close Russian nuclear facilities. 

The Chelyabinsk region is home to key parts of Russia's civilian and military nuclear industry including Mayak, a waste processing facility that saw one of the world's worst ever nuclear accidents in 1957.

Boy oh boy Ted, some of them Russians are tough. Running into the side of buses and trucks, and into the front of cars! I assume this is all for insurance claims. How bad they must feel after being run over, then finding they've been videoed!

Well that's a clever way of posting a link to the climate change denialist web site. Think I'll look for a more scientific source. onpatrol

Quite a coincidence that we're due for a close fly-by this evening. Is there any evidence that this crash was a companion orbiting with the one that doesn't hit us?

Ivan, dont think so, the russian one was east west i think and tonights one is south to north.
Rhys, this was up on WUWT at half 10 last night, didnt see it on other sources earlier than that. But if it offends your sensibilities, you'd best go and look somewhere more comforting.

This video shows some of the other everyday happenings caught on Russian dashcams when there are no large meteorites visible.

What on earth is lying in the road at junctions waiting to upend Russian cars? I watched it several times and couldn't work out what was going on.

I bought myself a dashcam a few weeks ago. Having driven around 200 000 miles up and down the motorways to Navitron over the last few years, I've seen no end of bizarre and unpleasant driving incidents, I figured it might be worth getting them on tape from now on, just in case. Still haven't worked out how to use it properly. It's an HD cam, but it only seems to give me the option of saving up to 15minutes on the SD card (maybe because the resolution is too high for the 4GB SD card I've got in it.
