Shocking video footage shows the taxi going too fast before smashing head-on into another car and mowing down a group of pedestrians in Russia
The out-of-control cab was going too fast when it made an illegal left turn, before ploughing into an oncoming Skoda and skidding into pedestrains.
CCTV footage of the horrific crash shows three people being flung into the air as the taxi driver's car slides out of control.
It hurtles a few metres into a nearby car park before coming to an abrupt stop, leaving a trail of destruction behind.
Video footage shows two men climb out of the Skoda, looking disorientated, and the crumpled remains of both cars.
