A motorist could face dangerous driving charges after being captured on dash cam narrowly avoiding a head-on collision during an illegal overtaking manoeuvre.
The video, posted to Facebook by Kevin Burton, shows a silver four-wheel drive attempting to overtake a truck on the Kaimai Ranges on Wednesday night. However, it ran out of room, and went over the yellow lines - into the path of oncoming traffic.
The four-wheel drive was caught between a ute and the truck, and barely managed to scrape through - taking out the wing mirrors of both passenger vehicles.
Police say if they can find the driver they will press charges.
