In the video a blue hatchback, with a red P-plate on the rear window, is seen turning from Glasscocks Rd into the right hand lane of Frankston-Dandenong Rd, Lyndhurst.

A truck, also travelling in the right hand land, appears to slow down for the car but cannot avoid smashing into the rear.

The hatchback is pushed off the road into the centre median strip, braking before coming to a rest on an angle.

Remarkably the car does not roll in the process.

The video shows some damage is caused to the hatchback's rear.

The dashcam vision shows the incident took place last Wednesday just before 7am.

It's unclear whether anyone was injured in the incident.
