The Or Yarok Association for Safer Driving released footage Monday morning from what could have been a major accident in southern Israel.

The footage, taken by an Or Yarok vehicle on Route 90 in southern Israel Friday afternoon, shows a car suddenly straying into the opposite lane, after the driver apparently fell asleep at the wheel.

The vehicle in question narrowly missed colliding head first into oncoming traffic when a car coming from the opposite direction attempted to swerve off the road so as to avoid the out-of-control vehicle.

But the vehicle which strayed out of its lane continued to pull to the left, leaving the oncoming car only moments to pull back onto the road and avoid a crash.
