A Kamloops driver had a close call this week when a transport truck almost hit him when it was changing lanes.

Dash cam footage shows the semi travelling ahead of the driver in the centre lane on the Trans-Canada Highway near the Hugh Allan Drive exit in Kamloops, Aug. 12.

The semi driver suddenly veers right into the passenger vehicle's lane without signalling, although the hazards were flashing, forcing the driver with the dash cam to speed up to avoid getting hit or forced off the road.

The driver submitted this video to but wished to remain anonymous.
