Terrifying dashcam footage has captured the moment a truck and car collided on the Southern Expressway in Adelaide.

The truck can be seen shifting into the middle lane.

A white car beside him decides to do the same, and seconds later there’s an impact, with debris flying.

The collision forced the truck’s trailer to swerve dangerously into the far lane, as the driver tried desperately to regain control.

Chad Coppins, himself a truckie, was just behind as it all unfolded.

“The car pulled out in front of him and hit his trailer, and that’s what made it bounce around in front of me,” he said.

“I had to nearly go into the side barrier. If I was in the middle lane, it probably would have been a lot worse.”

Motorbike or car – who gives way?

He says dangerous incidents with trucks are all too common and warned motorists to be on alert.

“We go through this on a daily basis,” he said.

“They just have no idea on how big they are, how heavy they are, and how long it takes to stop.”

In that case, the truck’s driver is now facing charges.
