Driver Narrowly Avoids Rolling Pickup Truck In Terrifying Dash Cam Footage (WATCH)

Posted: Updated:

You have to hand it to this quick-thinking driver.

While driving in Thailand, the motorist managed to swerve just in time when an airborne pickup truck barrels into the middle of the road. In dashboard camera footage of the miraculous move, the driver narrowly avoids the rolling truck by pulling into the opposite lane.

It appears the pickup truck was traveling on a parallel road in opposite direction when the driver lost control and somehow flipped the vehicle. With some shrubbery blocking a direct view of the other road, the truck appears to burst out of the brush and roll across the road.

The terrifying video, originally shared on Facebook in September, certainly gives some of the Russian dash cam videos a run for their money.

Thailand is home to some of the most dangerous roads in the world. According to the World Health Organization's most recent estimate, 26,312 people were killed in road traffic accidents in 2010.
