Dashcam captures moment Ukrainian motorist falls asleep at wheel and crashes on highway

A Ukrainian motorist's dashcam captured the moment he fell asleep at the wheel and rear-ended at a truck.

The dramatic footage from August 1 shows Vlad Savin's car veer to the right and smash straight into the back of a truck on the E40 near Babyn.

Savin told Newsflare: "I fell asleep for eight seconds and totalled my car.

"MRI showed a closed craniocerebral injury and the right lower leg suffered from the airbag, the bone is intact, there was a large hematoma, but now I am absolutely OK. Still have to sell my car though."
