If you go out for a drive tonight you’re sure of a big surprise – that’s the moral of this shocking video, where a driver meets his worst nightmare in a dark country lane.

The video starts as a van is driving down a rural road, the dashcam faithfully observing what’s happening in front of it. With the radio on and darkness all around, it’s a calm scene, until the driver rounds one corner.

Then, suddenly, a large kangaroo comes out from the left side of the road, revealing that the footage was filmed in Australia. After a few test jumps, the marsupial comes straight at the van – and jumps right on top of the vehicle.
A lot of bangs and some swearing later – “F****** kangaroo!”, shouts the driver – the truck stops moving.
