Video shows tank crossing Russian road

Published By United Press International
URALVAGONZAVOD, Russia, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- A spokeswoman for a Russian tank manufacturer said a tank seen crossing a road in an online video did not break any traffic laws.

The Uralvagonzavod spokeswoman said the tank recorded crossing a busy street near the Nizhny Tagil tank factory had a green light while cars seen nearly colliding with the tank should have stopped for a red light, RIA Novosti reported Monday.

"The car drivers who did not stop at the red traffic light were wrong," the spokeswoman said. "The tank drove through at green."

"The video clearly shows that there is a red light for the cars," she said.
