Russian dash cam video: From stunning to bizarre
(CBS News) When a massive meteor blazed across the sky over a remote part of central Russia on Friday, it was traveling at speeds of up to 12 miles per second, but despite those intense speeds, much of the event was captured on video. Many Russians have mounted cameras to their car's dashboards in an effort to fend off charges from possibly corrupt police officers and from insurance scammers who often stage accidents.
Those same cameras turned to the sky to capture an event few people will ever see in their lifetime.
