A SHAKEN lorry driver has released footage of a “death wish” driver come with inches of a head-on with another HGV.
Despite dark and icy conditions, the overtaking car driver just squeezes between the two lorries before zooming off at high speed.
The incident was filmed in Melton, East Yorkshire, Wednesday morning by a driver who wishes to remain anonymous.
He wrote: “Death wish inbound. Bet me and the other truck driver would have got the blame being HGV drivers and all that.
“Fashionable to blame the HGV isn’t it?”
The clip begins with the dashcam lorry driving over a 30mph sign in the road.
The lights of an approaching HGV can clearly be seen on the straight stretch of road.
Just before the two lorries pass, a speeding car overtakes the dashcam lorry and pulls back in with inches to spare.
The car disappears into the distance, appearing to be travelling at twice the speed limit.
Simon P J Cook responded online: “Bloody hell that was close. What an idiot.”
Matt Small commented: “Bloody close that, d***!”
Emma Hanger said: “What a f idiot!”
The driver said today: “My thoughts at the time was that I was almost scraping a body from a car sandwiched between two trucks.
“It’s a daily occurrence I go there every morning and experience similar, but usually not as dangerous.”
