The moment a driver narrowly missed a head-on collision with a truck driving down the wrong side on the road has been caught on film. 

As Mike Wetz drove through Texas on Sunday 19 March, the road he was on seemed quiet and clear.

But as he cruised round a bend, a Dodge Ram travelling at 70mph on the wrong side soon came in to view.


Texan driver narrowly avoids head-on collision with a truck!


The truck driver continued, seemingly oblivious, straight towards Mr Wetz's Ford Focus. 

With a split-second swerve, Mr Wetz manoeuvred to the hard shoulder with the truck unflinching in its direction, just missing his car.

Mr Wetz, from Bandera, Texas, USA, said: 'It was a heart-in mouth moment - the truck driver seemed almost suicidal.

Mr Wetz turned a corner and noticed a large truck hurtling towards him on the wrong side of the road 

'Everything seemed to move in slow motion for a few seconds.

'It felt as though the driver was aiming for me, he didn't even flinch as he sped towards me' said Mr Weltz. 

He added that it was terrifying to think about what might have happened if he hadn't have swerved.

'It all happened too fast I didn't get a chance to see who was driving or what they were doing.

'My mind was racing evaluating the options I had after I recognised there was a major issue with this vehicle. 

Mr Wetz managed to avoid crashing by swerving into the road's hard shoulder and said it was terrifying to think about what might have happened if he hadn't have done so 


The Dodge driver did not appear to change their speed and Mr Wetz said as though he felt though he was being aimed at 

He said he didn't turn back and drive after the man because he wanted to be as far away from him as possible 

'I was in shock, I did not turn around and chase the guy down my reaction was to get as far away from this guy as possible.

'My vehicle is a Ford Focus - weighing about 3,200lbs - and the Dodge Ram truck is over 7,000lbs.

'There wasn't good odds in a fight with us each going 70mph.'
