The driver of a speeding Audi RS6 collided with a tram at an intersection in Poland.

Footage recorded by a dashcam would tempt you to believe the accident took place in Russia, but it actually happened yesterday around noon in Poland. The Audi RS6 driver was obviously speeding and wanted to turn right so he decided to go on the opposite lane to overtake a vehicle which was waiting at the red light.

Due to excessive speed, he only saw the incoming tram moments before the impact and even though he tried avoiding it, the streetcar hit the RS6 Avant's right side. According to local media, the Audi driver escaped the crash without any serious injuries while his vehicle now needs some serious repairs.  Less than an hour after the incident, the tram started doing its routes again.

Special thanks go to all who sent in the tip!
