Unsafe overtaking on a highway leads to a near miss. Too bad the video ends so abruptly.

Video taken October 12th, 2012 (10/05/2012).

P.S. For those of you who have seen the George Carlin bit on ‘near miss’ vs. ‘near hit’ and are just waiting to comment that it should be “near hit” …  According to Wikipedia, “A near miss is an unplanned event that did not result in injury, illness, or damage – but had the potential to do so. Only a fortunate break in the chain of events prevented an injury, fatality or damage; in other words, a miss that was nonetheless very near.” So the term “near miss” is correct in that it is a miss, and it was near in proximity.
