Lorry almost tips over on roundabout

Updated: 

Footage has emerged showing the moment a lorry almost rolled over on a roundabout after exiting a motorway.

The incident took place above an unknown section of the M5 on February 1.

The video was recorded on the dashcam of a motorist following the lorry as it drives on to the roundabout indicating right and travelling in the right-hand lane.

However, it appears to drift over the central white line into the left lane, at which point the driver corrects his trajectory by turning sharply right.

This causes the lorry's weight to shift and the trailer lurches over to a sickening angle. Fortunately, the driver manages to compensate for his mistake and avert a big accident.

Despite the heavy impact as the trailer landed back on its wheels, it appears to have survived the incident without damage.
