Miraculously, no casualties have been reported.


A car smashed an Osterio Mario restaurant in the Russian capital city center. The incident took place on Barrikadnaya street when the restaurant, luckily, was still closed without workers inside.

Surveillance cameras nearby captured the moment of the crash, while passers-by later released footage of the aftermath.

Before hitting the restaurant, the Hyundai made it to the sidewalk and rammed a newspaper stand. Onlookers nearby were not affected.

According to Moscow’s traffic policing agency, the Hyundai driver, 41, felt sick at the wheel and could not control the car. He has been hospitalized.
