A close call between a left-turning car and an oncoming semi-truck is turning heads online.

The risky maneuver happened near Highway 97 and Highway 99 outside of Cache Creek, according to dashcam footage posted to YouTube on Tuesday by Canadian Roadtripper.

The video shows a white car lined up behind another vehicle in the left-turn lane at a three-way intersection. As the first vehicle starts to turn left, the driver capturing the video can be heard saying, “Come on, man,” before honking his horn a number of times.

The driver of the white car zips through the turn as well just before an oncoming semi-truck barrels through, and the rig narrowly misses clipping the back of the car.

The driver and passenger in the vehicle capturing the footage can be heard screaming as they witness the close call, before making the turn themselves and pulling over.
