A seemingly hammered tractor driver went on a rampage in Siberia, turning a parking lot into a demolition derby. But the ride was no laughing matter for the furious owners of the smashed vehicles, who beat the man for his recklessness.
The incident, captured on camera by residents of a nearby apartment, took place in the mid-sized Siberian city of Barnaul. The driver, an allegedly intoxicated 25-year-old named Timofey Shadrov, swerved his tractor into a row of park cars, clipping two before the front-end loader got caught on the bumper of a mid-sized sedan, Lifenews.ru reported.
The sedan’s bumper quickly snapped off as Shadrov plowed on through, sending his vehicle barreling towards a parked GAZelle truck. As the tractor’s bucket wedged under the truck’s front upon impact, Shadrov continued to ram the first truck into another GAZelle parked next to it. The multi-ton tractor continued to push, but the truck sandwich wouldn’t budge, bringing the vehicular rampage to an end.
For super-smashed Shadrov and his passenger in crime, the ordeal was far from over. Several men immediately charged into the street, and the first to reach the tractor climbed up to the cabin and pulled open the door, delivering a volley of right hooks to Shadrov’s face.
As two other men helped his apologetic 35-year-old partner, Aleksandr Bobrov, climb down from the vehicle, a four-man posse swarmed Shadrov, now doubly smashed. The vengeful mob rained blow after blow on his face, and attempted to pull him from the vehicle. Shadrov hung on for dear life as they yanked at his arm and neck, and pummeled the back of his head.
Realizing it would take the jaws of life to pry him from the doorframe, the enraged men relented, bringing the melee to an end. Shadrov sat up, dazed and bloody, with a trip to the hospital likely in his near future.
Seven vehicles were damaged in the incident, Barnaul traffic police told LifeNews. Police said they were considering suspending Shadrov’s license for the accident, but it remains to be seen if criminal charges will be brought against the driver or the angry men who visited mob justice upon him.
