WATCH: Carnage narrowly avoided on the Cunningham Highway

A MOTORIST has captured the heart-stopping moment a truck narrowly avoided crashing into a number of vehicles queued at roadworks on the Cunningham Highway. 

The Dash Cam Owners Australia Facebook page posted a video by motorist Ron Bolton on Saturday morning of a near-miss on the Cunningham Highway on September 7. 

In the video, Mr Bolton, along with a number of other motorists, are queued at a section of roadworks, eastbound on the Cunningham Highway. 

Suddenly, a truck rounded the bend and was confronted by the queue of traffic, hitting the brakes and swerving into the centre overtaking lane.

Motorists heading west took evasive action, narrowly avoiding a head-on with the truck as it tried to halt its momentum, tyres smoking.
