It's that type of video you are tempted to immediately say it was altered to create a sensation. Even if it's fake, this was done very professionally as even after seeing it in slow motion for several times we don't fully comprehend what really happened.

The video was recorded in Russia from a dashboard-mounted camera inside a car running behind a current-gen BMW 5-Series which as you will see will make a left turn. All of the sudden, a wild previous-gen Mercedes-Benz C-Class "ghost car" appears and lightly collides with the BMW.

If we were to make an assumption, the C-Class came from the same direction as the tram you see in the background and probably drove through the intersection despite the red light. You can see a Chevrolet (probably Lacetti) to the right of the BMW applying the brakes after probably seeing the oncoming C-Class. The BMW 5-Series driver saw the C-Class only at the last moment and applied the brakes too late.

Feel free to enlighten us if you can find another explanation.
