A lorry driver was spotted dangerously overtaking a car on a single carriageway with very little room to perform the manoeuvre.

The dash-cam footage shows the Fresh Linc HGV driver make a risky overtaking on the A16 in Spalding, Lincolnshire, and causing the driver behind to brake and slow down.

As the small car behind the lorry makes a sudden brake to allow the lorry driver through the HGV then swoops into the tiny gap between the Morrisons truck and the car.

This was the lorry driver’s third attempt and swerving in front of the small car. 

After being posted on the Facebook group Spotted: Spalding, the video has gathered nearly 80,000 views, with users airing their frustration at the dangerous driving.

One user wrote: ‘Simple ban lorry’s from overtaking on A16 , that is going happen anyway before long if HGV drivers continue to make stupid moves like this.

‘Car driver is doing nothing wrong just sitting behind a slow moving Morrison’s truck which is most likely doing 45 mph.’

Another user wrote: ‘If it wasn’t a clear opportunity to pass he shouldn’t have even tried. Clown.’
