Terrifying footage has emerged which has been caught on the dash cam of a truck in Victoria showing a woman incredibly lucky to be alive after a very close encounter with an out of control truck.

The video comes from the dash cam of a driver who had pulled over to check on a woman he saw out of her car on a bush road in Carlisle River, Victoria and has been featured on the Dash Cam Owners Australia Facebook page.

As the pair are talking a truck, appearing to be speeding, comes around the bend, spots the tree branch on the road and the truck starts to swing out of control. The footage shows just how close the encounter was.


“I’m about to be killed. That’s what went through my head,” Helen told 9NEWS, “I honestly don’t know how close it go to me, I just ran”.

When asked about the truck driver she said “He didn’t do anything wrong, the log was across the road, you couldn’t avoid the log.”

We are certainly glad that everyone came out of this safe!

  • Absolutely terrifying, but definitely an accident where there was no fault.


  • I have watched this footage a dozen times. I would be buying a lottery ticket after that!


  • Amazing skill of the truck driver not to end up flipping his truck or crashing it off the road. Poor guy as there was nothing he could do. Coming around the corner to see that tree over the road im sure he said a few bad words as all this unfolded.


  • Actually I saw this on TV.. Sooo terrifying, and that ladies lucky escape was amazing.


  • They are all very fortunate to still be alive. The car could very easily have rolled over as soon as it collided with the tree blocking the road. I’m astounded the semi-trailer didn’t roll over too. I can imagine there was probably parts of the tree jammed in / between the wheels. suspension as well. The lady is so lucky she had the foresight to run as soon as she either saw or only heard the out of control truck coming towards her.


  • Thank goodness everyone was safe. The footage is so confronting.


  • Cant believe that no one was killed. They are so lucky to be safe.


  • I saw this on the news and the lady is so lucky to be alive!


  • Just shows that you can never take anything for granted. Things can go from normal to devastating in a split second.


  • Incredible that they all escaped. Dash Cams really to capture some amazing things.


  • Oh my! I can’t even imagine how many thoughts pass through your mind at that moment!!
