This dashcam footage shows the driver of a Nissan Micra attempting to ?undertake? a truck, but ending up paying rather a painful price.

The video shows a silver sedan overtake the camera-equipped vehicle as the Micra undertakes in the emergency lane.

The two vehicles try the same move on the truck up ahead, but the latter?s driver starts to move over to let the sedan past, seemingly not seeing the Micra until the last moment.

The Micra driver reacts by putting a couple of tyres in the dirt, before losing control of the vehicle and flipping it over onto its roof. No word on the extent of injuries suffered.
