Truck flips over after avoiding car on highway

Police in New South Wales, Australia, have released footage showing a truck spinning out of control and flipping over off a highway near Cooma, after it avoided a car that had carried out a narrow overtaking manoeuvre.

The dashcam footage shows a white vehicle crossing lanes, forcing the truck driver to swerve off the highway to avoid a collision.

The white vehicle does not stop as the truck flips over into a ditch beside the road.

Police officers found the truck on its side in a ditch beside the highway, and the driver was treated for a head injury at the scene.

Police are now seeking more information about the driver of the white vehicle.
