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.

      We were hit with a $500 insurance increase for my wife's Honda. Both of us have a perfect driving record with no claims ever. Shocked by this increase I went online to get some quotes for her car. The two sites I first visited were actually more expensive than our new rate, but then I found ( http://tinyurl.com/BestInsuranceQuotes ) I got a quote within minutes and ended up saving over $300 on our car insurance!

      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.

      More & more people are using dash cams these days, not just in Europe. This is for police stops, as well as the idiots that try to have you hit them in the rear & collect ins. money.

        Ahem... if you had actually watched the video, you'd have noticed only men exited the vehicles from the drivers' side. The article even noted the driver of the car had "his wits about him." I'm not implying men are bad drivers; but, pointing out the facts from the article/video. So there! :P

      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.

      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.
