Icy conditions spelled disaster for one Russian motorist when he lost control of his vehicle and it went flying into a roadside ditch.

A dashcam video of the incident was uploaded onto YouTube yesterday –although the clip is time-stamped March 27, 2012. The car is seen to swerve and skid before losing control and leaving the road in a cloud of snow.
