An incredibly close encounter between a kangaroo and oncoming traffic has been recorded on a couple’s dashcam.
In the video from GWN7 News, the marsupial appears to come out of nowhere before launching in front of the driver’s windscreen.
The video was captured on a country road between Donnybrook and Bunbury, in southwest Western Australia.
Incredible footage shows the animal first avoiding a major accident with a different car travelling in the right lane, which reportedly clipped the animal accidentally.
The kangaroo is then seen flying in front of the couple’s car – narrowly avoiding the vehicle as it soars past.
GWN7 News reports that the couple looked around to check on the roo and it seemed unhurt as it hopped away.
A couple of months ago a cyclist travelling at 65km/h was lucky to escape with only minor injuries after a kangaroo crashed into him on a popular east Perth training route.
And in February a Perth man cheated death after he collided with a kangaroo while riding his motorbike to work.
