A video of a truck ramming into cars on a highway is being shared on Facebook claiming that the incident happened on Mysuru road near Kangeri in Karnataka. Let’s fact-check the claim made in the post.
Claim: Video of an accident on Mysuru road in Karnataka.
Fact: Video shows an accident on a highway in Russia, not on Mysuru road (Karnataka). The accident occurred on the ‘M-5’ highway that connects Russian cities Moscow and Chelyabinsk. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.
When the screenshots of the image were subjected to reverse image search technique, a video of ‘Ruptly’ was obtained in the search results. As per ‘Ruptly’, the accident took place on ‘M-5’ highway at Chelyabinsk city in Russia. ‘M-5’ highway runs between the Russian cities Moscow and Chelyabinsk. In the accident, two people were reported to have been killed and seven others were injured.

To sum it up, video of a truck ramming into cars on a Russian highway is being shared as on a Mysuru road in Karnataka.
