A semi-trailer was attempting to overtake on the M5 on Thursday.
As it was approaching a car, a sudden decision was made to quickly slow the heavy vehicle, sending it spiralling to the side of the motorway.
The dashcam footage shows smoke pour out from its tyres as the driver jammed on the brakes.
The semi-trailer and its load jack-knifed, but incredibly managed to avoid a crash.
No one was hurt in the incident.
