Watch a massive Russian truck save itself from almost certain disaster

If you've never heard of a Russian Kirovec K-701 commercial truck don't worry—we hadn't either until we came across this amazing video this past week on Bangshift.com. We're not exactly sure how this 30,000 pound truck ended up in the middle of a river but we've certainly seen crazier things happen in Russia.

What we do know is what happens once the driver puts the trucks massive wheels, low gearing and 16 cylinder diesel engine to the test. This seemingly hopeless situation is quickly transformed into one of the more impressive and insane recoveries we've ever seen.

Those crazy russians. Only they would take a Caterpillar 824B Dozer switch the cab around and put a 5th wheel on it.
