An out-of-control white van narrowly avoided careering into another car and nearby houses after it skidded 360 degrees across a junction on a wet road in North Essex.
Conor Smith, 29, was driving home with his brother at around 7pm in Stebbing, Dunmow, on Sunday when a white transit van spun across the road and missed their car by mere seconds.
Heart-stopping dashcam footage, taken from Mr Smith's car, showed the moment the out-of-control van skidded sideways across the road and barely avoided smashing into Mr Smith's car and nearby houses.
The clip begins with Mr Smith driving down a residential road in the dim evening light before overtaking parked vehicles and gradually slowing down as he approaches a junction.
