The driver comes dangerously close to the P-plater, before moving into the left hand lane.

The Landcruiser can be seen travelling alongside the other car for a few seconds with the window open.

He then dramatically swerves into the other lane and crashes into the side of the P-platter's vehicle.

Both cars nearly fly off the road in the smash.

After swerving into the P-plater, the driver of the white Landcruiser speeds off in the left hand lane.
