A dash cam captured an extremely frightening ordeal. The footage shows a fairly mundane drive along a two-lane through a heavily forested area. The driver of the car passes slower cars and trucks with relative ease as the road snakes along.

The trip seems to be going rather well until disaster strikes when the driver attempts to pass two trucks at once, as, apparently, the driver of the second truck wanted to do some passing of their own. Just as the car starts to go around the two, the truck swerves into the same lane as the car -- at very high speeds, mind you -- and nearly runs the car off of the road.

Fortunately, the car driver seems to have had his wits about him, as he was able to avoid both smashing into the truck and going off of the road into the trees.

Check out the video for yourself above and make sure to always exercise caution when passing on two-lane roads.

      I wonder if the car with the camera had his headlights ON.Truck drivers are the same the world over,holding up traffic,causing accidents,ect,ect.My favorite in America is on the Interstate,2 lanes in each direction speed limit 75MPH.The trucks usually are limited to 65-70 MPH. Trucks will pull out into the left lane at 70 with a car starting to pass at 75-80 MPH causing the car to SLAM on his brakes to avoid getting hit by the trailer.My recent 3000 mile trip across country I had a couple trucks turn on their blinkers at THE SAME TIME they pull out while I am coming at them at 75-80 MPH so they can go a couple MPH faster than the truck in front of him.Some places they restrict trucks from the left lane to improve TRAFFIC FLOW !!!!!!!!!!!

        ...just a thought here Paul: perhaps you shouldn't be doing 80 in a 70 zone?

        I thought Mr Perfect was a wrestler...no, it's Paul!? Amazing how many accidents the cars cause but it's always the truck drivers that cause you the problems....right Paul?

        I have a clean driving record.. and when I'm not driving a truck I drive a car.. and like ALL truck drivers, we learned how to drive a car first. It's almost impossible to judge the speed of the vehicle behind you when looking in your mirrors, but I know for a fact that many automobile drivers don't want a truck to get ahead of them for ANY reason and will intentionally speed up. I also know we almost always get right back over to that right lane the moment it's safe. Keep in mind, we're working, the road is our office and it sucks. 3000 miles.. that's a short week for me - and you'd be amazed at how different things look from behind the wheel of a tractor trailer.

      Hm, well, in the USA, at least my state, you're not supposed to pass two vehicles at once any way. So serves them right. I guess this is Europe, France maybe? I did feel terrible for the child. I blame the stupid male driver. :-) Men can drive to save their lives. Ha!! Just dishing it back to you guys, don't get your nickers in a twist over it. LOLOL

        Never heard of that. Not a law in my state. What if the vehicle in front of you never passes the one in front of it.....you stuck there forever?

        The first truck he was passing tried to pass the second truck, at the same time he passed the first one, right? Open your eyes & watch again.

        It is Russia. But the blue truck should have looked to see it any approaching vehicles were overtaking him BEFORE pulling to the left. I have seen many videos of traffic in Russia and this incident seen to be quite common.

      Europe, especially Russia, has a ton of scammers that pull in front of you and slam their brakes on, and then blame you for the accident. Most Russian motorists use dash cams to protect themselves. Dave

      Whoever Wrote This story to go along with the video Has No experience or intelligence when it comes to Driving. (Just as the car starts to go around the two, the truck swerves into the same lane as the car -- at very high speeds, mind you -- and nearly runs the car off of the road.) This was the idiot in the cars fault.

      Reminds me of American roads before the Interstate system was in place. When I first started driving four lane highways were rare and it was a lot like this. Even the road markings are familiar, not like today with solid yellow lines, etc.

      Anyone that has driven on interstate 65 between nashville and northern indiana has more than likely had this happen to them. Every time I go to chicago I have this happen 2-3 times along the way (minus the accident). I usually drive late at night now to avoid the traffic and sometimes I will see 2 trucks running nose to tail a mile ahead of me and not a single car behind me. As I get almost even with the tailend of the truck in back they will swerve over into the left lane and pull along side the leading truck and then sit there and block both lanes for 15-20 miles. If this happened once or maybe twice I would say it was not intentional or a coincidence but I have had this happen to me at least a dozen times over the past 10 years. I have also had trucks run me off the road because they dont even look when they make a lane change, I have had my hood creased because one cut over and the back of the trailer went across my hood and dented it. I had one truck go all the way into the gravel to keep me from passing him. I used to be very courteous to truck drivers as I grew up with neighbors that were professional truck drivers and I drove a moving truck for a time so I know how frustrating it can be. the problem is there is no such thing as a professional truck driver any more, but people just drive trucks for a living and I dont cut any of them a break anymore. Sucks for the guys that take their job serious but theres just too many bad apples out there than ruin it for the rest.

        I agree, there are "bad apples" in the trucking business. The problem is, there are several "trees" full of them in 4 wheelers at any given time.
