A bride’s parents and her sister were tragically killed on their way to her wedding when an out-of-control car slammed into them on a pavement.

CCTV footage shows the moment the car was struck by another on a road in the city of Makhachkala in south-western Russia.

The dramatic video captured the moment a black Lada suddenly turns left, which sends it careering into the path of a speeding Toyota Camry.

The Camry driver  swerves to the right but has no real chance of avoiding a collision. It slams into the Lada – sending the other car hurtling off the road.

Just out of the camera shot, the Lada smashes right into the parents and sister of a woman who was due to get married later that day. 

The bride’s relatives had been waiting on the pavement for a lift to the ceremony in the city’s Dzhami Hotel in Russia.

Dashcam footage from inside the Camry shows how the Lada suddenly appears directly in its path causing the catastrophic collision.

It’s been reported that one of the drivers also died in the accident, while other passengers were taken to local hospitals with an array of injuries.

"The traffic light was out of order (the yellow light is blinking) that means that a person who was making a turn was supposed to give way to another driver,” says a commenter who claims to have witnessed the accident. “The Lada driver is obviously guilty."

It is not clear whether or not the wedding took place as planned.
