This dashcam footage from Australia shows a Mitsubishi Outlander driver attempt a foolish overtaking manoeuvre, forcing the driver of an oncoming Toyota Hilux to take evasive action.
Police in Queensland released the footage showing the near-miss in Moresby. The clip shows the grey Outlander heading north on the Bruce Highway, overtaking the camera-equipped truck just prior to the South Johnstone turn-off.

The Outlander driver turned off the highway a few moments later. Watch the footage above…
