Video: Russian Reporter Gets Hit by a Race Car

| by Alex Groberman

Everyone knows that auto racing is a dangerous, dangerous sport.

As it turns out, covering auto racing can be hazardous to your health, too. That’s the lesson one young, enterprising Russian reporter learned the hard way recently when he was side-swiped by a drift car.

Little is known about the reporter in question but, according to Dylan Murphy of SportsGrid, he was standing as close to the track as he was because he was busy filming an episode of Auto Exotica.

Sure, that's not a ton of information, but words don't really do this situation justice anyway. The tape kind of tells the whole story:

No Russians were killed in the making of this cautionary tale.
