THIS is the terrifying moment a potato lorry driver smashed into back of car after a woman swerved in front of him on a busy road.
Dashcam footage shows the small white hatchback pulling in front of the HGV on a dual carriageway to try to make a last-minute exit on to a slip road.

Lorry driver Adam Swindells then smashes into the back of the car, which is propelled along the road.
As a furious Adam swears and shouts at the woman she examines the massive dent in the back of her car before staring back at him.
Adam says there was a child in the vehicle as well as the driver’s mother, who, he claims, wanted to fight him.
‘WHO’S AT FAULT?’
The incident happened on the Chapel Lane junction on the A59 outside Longton, Lancs, at around 2.30pm yesterday afternoon.
Adam posted the video on Facebook yesterday saying: “Who’s at fault here? I have 27 tonne of spuds on the back as well so I ain’t stopping easy. Skip to 2:10 sorry about the language.”
The video shows Adam driving at around 50mph on the A59 when a white car tries to overtake him.
The white car overtakes him but then tries to turn left off the junction, slowing down in the process, and Adam blasts the horn.
Who’s at fault here? I have 27 tonne of spuds on the back as well so I ain’t stopping easy.
Lorry driver Adam Swindells
He is forced to slam on the brakes but, carrying 27 tonnes worth of potatoes, drives into the back of the white car which propels forward and narrowly misses a head on collision with a side barrier.
The white car rolls down the road as Adam can be heard saying: “You f****** stupid f****** c***!”
Adam stops behind the white car which has a massive dent across the boot.
A woman gets out of the car and inspects the damage. She stands there staring at Adam for over 15 seconds before going back to her car.
Adam explained in the Facebook comments that the woman had her grandchild in the car.
Many blamed the driver of the white car. John Clayton wrote: “She was definitely not following anyone as no one in front of her.”
