A dashcam captured the moment a huge lorry nearly crushed a car when the truck swerved to overtake in a place and time it should not have.

In the footage, shot in Erbil, Iraq on 13 June, a car is trying to join a highway, with a large truck to its left.

The driver of the huge vehicle appears not to check the blind spot in his mirrors before swerving out to pass a car in front -- a move he should not have made there anyway as a slip-road onto the highway is not to be used for overtaking.

The result is that the truck nearly crushes the car, which has to brake hard and sound its horn, at which point the reckless lorry driver appears to realise their error and give the car some space.
