Frightening moment mother with child on board has lucky escape from crash

Updated: 

A woman carrying a child in her car has had a narrow escape after another driver crossed into her lane as she was traveling at speed.

The intense and close moment was caught on the woman's dash cam as she drove along Pauri Road near Whanganui, New Zealand.


As she made her way along the highway a blue Mazda 3 can be seen crossing her path.

Tasking evasive reaction, the woman throws the car to the left and then to the right, attempting to counteract an inevitable skid. As the car loses control she luckily manages to stop the car after it spins a full 360 degrees.

Obviously distressed by the entire incident, her child can be heard crying in the back as the mother tries to comfort them.

Luckily nobody was injured or worse during this incident.
