I'm addicted to watching Russian dash cam vids of crashes and it's astonishing that just about every collision shown shows that the "drivers" steer INTO the collision path rather than away from it. Had they read the "tea leaves" correctly about where the other vehicle was headed a great many of these collisions would have been avoided. The description of this incident sounds exactly like so many of those eminently avoidable crashes.

Another thing I pondered about this woman's mindset is hey, she SURVIVED the collision in pretty good condition and the little car and all it's safety equipment DID THE JOB. So I'm not getting the motivation to trade up to a battering ram? Oh- silly me, being logical again.
