Close call there, Aughnacloy direction i think it said

And the blind dangerous asshole just drives off to try and kill someone else.

I really hope the police hunt that p***k down as it's clear they didnt even attempt to look either direction.
Gotta love the way the bloke who has just escaped death carries on as if nothing has just happened. I'd have filled my trunks.
Zero conscience, they'll be happy to try and kill someone else.

Really well
I'd argue without the cameras if the van had hit it would be 100% at fault. With the camera footage I'd go 50/50 as overtook coming on a junction but your man just sailed out without due care.

It's a give way junction. The car neither gave way, looked, attempted to look on the main carriageway. It is 100% their fault, and they are 100% a blind dangerous **** who will kill someone some day
I agree he’s blind and dangerous you should always look both ways. Thee van is still breaking the law and overtaking dangerously at a junction. They would both carry responsibility in an accident.

To me, the overtaking manoeuvre was started in a safe manner, the Burgundy wonder showed a momentary lack of road sense and awareness.
Both parties will hopefully learn from the experience.

It wasn’t started as safe as you should not overtake while approaching a junction

I’d agree that both are at fault though

I remember reading in an advanced driving book that you should only overtake a car when the oncoming lane is clear (obvs) and when you have passed any right hand junction openings. Some tend to only look to the right when turning left at a junction and this video proves that.

That's the common sense approach versus putting your life into someone else's hands. Idiotic from both drivers there.

Van did well to swerve round the other car, many others would have just slammed the brakes on.
