'Crazy overtake in Ireland' video goes viral


A video of a "crazy overtake" in Ireland has gone viral after being posted to the website 'LiveLeak'.

The video has been viewed on the website almost 50,000 times in less than twenty hours since it was posted.

The video shows a driver narrowly avoiding three oncoming cars as they overtake a car and a truck. The car is in the middle of a wide road and oncoming drivers are forced to swerve to avoid collision.
