Horrifying dashcam footage shows a knife-wielding killer attempting to attack a driver after brutally murdering two women.
A victim is seen lying on the ground in the shocking clip as the knifeman thrusts his blade into the windscreen.
He had attacked a shop worker before murdering the second woman, who is believed to have witnessed the first frenzied murder.
Police in the Russian region of Sverdlovsk Oblast said the 45-year-old had escaped from a psychiatric facility when he carried out the violent killings.
The clip was taken from a car which sped off as the killer approached, but the glass is seen smashing from the force of the impact.
