Driver has near-death experience with oncoming truck

Updated: 

It's a scenario we all dread when we climb behind the wheel: meeting a speeding truck that happens to be travelling at pace in the wrong lane.

This nightmare situation happened to Chris Sherburn on April 6 while he was driving along the quiet country roads of Wales.


Chris claims that he rounded a narrow bend in his truck, only to be confronted by a much larger HGV that was travelling on the wrong side of the road.

The huge machine was busy hauling two trailers at the time and reacted at the last minute to avoid hitting Chris, who had taken evasive action by steering into the bank at the side of the road.
