Shocking dashcam footage has emerged of a near collision between a car and a caravan and a truck on a country road.

Moments later, a truck narrowly avoids the car by veering to the side of the road, driving through the dirt and grass before rejoining the road.
The motorist simultaneously pulls back into the correct lane at the sight of the truck, but turns too early and loses control of the vehicle.
It swerves across the road, the caravan upside down from the momentum.
The impact sinks into the roof of the caravan when the driver gets out of his vehicle.
The chaotic vision was published online on the Dashcams Australia YouTube page and then shared to their social media profiles.

Many viewers criticized the driver for the way they switched lanes and praised the lucky truck driver for avoiding what would have been a devastating crash.
‘Great support for that truck driver to avoid the collision and to recover properly. This is what an everyday hero looks like,” wrote one.
“Wow, well done truck driver, it pays to keep your eyes on the road, unlike the driver,” said another.
A third commented: ‘The passenger must have been asleep or on his phone too. How did neither of them realize?’
Many respondents believe that the driver drifted across the roadway because he either fell asleep at the wheel due to fatigue or was distracted by something.
