Pigeon prompts car crash

A driver that braked to let a pigeon cross the road in Russia ended up causing a three car pile-up.

Video has emerged of the incident showing the innocent little bird the bird casually strolling from a grass verge onto the road, nonchalant about the peak hour traffic around it.

Instead of assuming the bird would move, or clean running over it, a motorist instead braked.

One car that tried to quickly overtake got wedged between a stationary vehicle while another ran up the back of the apparent animal lover.

It is unclear if the pigeon or any of the drivers sustained injuries.
