This dashcam footage from Australia shows a driver stop to let a Toyota RunX cross traffic, sparking a nasty crash between the Japanese hatchback and an oncoming Mazda3.

The clip shows the driver of the camera-equipped vehicle stop dead in the centre lane to allow the RunX across.

The person behind the wheel of the latter gladly accepts the invitation (apparently not bothering to check if it's safe to do so), but ends up heading straight into the path of a red Mazda barrelling down the inside lane.

The hot hatch clips the rear of the Toyota, but by the looks of things nobody was seriously injured.
