In the video, the driver is travelling north along Albany Highway when a dark coloured Commodore, seemingly overtaking a large truck, appears from behind a hill.

The driver of the Commodore is forced to swerve hard to the right, veering off the road itself, as the vehicle filming the footage narrowly passes between the car and truck in the correct lane.
