- Dash cam footage captured an overtaking car skid off the road in Queensland
- The impatient driver can be seen zooming past in a silver Holden Commodore
- Social media users were divided over who was at fault for the crash
This is the shocking moment an impatient driver attempts to overtake a car towing a van along a narrow road in Australia’s dusty .
Dash cam footage uploaded to Facebook shows a car travelling just over 70km/h along a single asphalt road surrounded by trees in Queensland’s west.
Out of nowhere, a silver sedan zooms past on the right at speed, losing traction on the rough road and spinning out of control just metres ahead of the family.
The overtaking Holden Commodore fishtails from one side of the road to the other, eventually skidding into a ditch by the side of the road.

‘Oh my God! Oh my God! What the f***!,’ the woman driving can be heard saying.
‘Just stay there,’ she tells her passenger who appears to have a baby sitting in the backseat as she rushes out of the car to check if the driver was alright.
The woman said the driver was ‘shaken up but okay’, adding that she gave the woman a lift to the next town as her car was a mangled wreck.
Social media users were quick to defend the actions of the overtaking driver, speculating that she could have been stuck behind the van for hours.
‘Curious as to how long commodore driver had been sitting behind van and if dashcam driver was doing the speed limit,’ one man wrote.
‘As a traveller there is nothing worse than sitting behind a caravan for dozens of kilometres,’ another agreed.
