In emergencies, some people panic and lose their capacity to think and function with catastrophic results, while others, keep their cool and take control of the situation.
The South Korean driver featured in the following video no doubt belongs to the second category of people.
While the motorist was driving up a steep and narrow road that was partially blocked by a crew of workmen, he saw a large truck with a crane starting to roll down uncontrollably.
But instead of panicking, he simply stopped, put the car in reverse and made a quick turn as soon as he found an opening, ultimately saving his life.
See how he did it in the dashcam footage that follows.
