The shocking footage shows a van driver being forced to stop at the crossing as the HGV drives into the oncoming lane.
Now police are trying to trace the driver of the lorry after the "potentially fatal" manoeuvre on January 5 at Ulceby crossing, North Lincolnshire.
Pc Michelle Pidgen of British Transport Police said: "The driver of the van was forced to pull over and stop on the crossing after the HGV driver overtook him, at speed.
"We want to speak to anyone who witnessed what happened and appeal for the driver of the van and of the HGV to come forward.
"This was extremely dangerous driving that forced the person behind the wheel of the van to come to a stop on the level crossing. This could have had serious and potentially fatal consequences for both drivers. It is vital we trace the HGV and speak to the drivers involved."
