Watch this Mercedes driver undertake three vehicles on M62 hard shoulder near Huddersfield

Video from dashcam shows a car go around a minibus, van and lorry on the motorway at Ainley Top.

This is the astonishing scene as a Mercedes went on to the hard shoulder - undertaking THREE vehicles at once on the M62 near Huddersfield.

Dashcam footage shows the driver of the silver car go around a van, a minibus and an HGV.

The astonishing video, taken on the motorway between Saddleworth and Huddersfield, shows a white van indicate before veering from the far right lane into the middle - straight into the path of an oncoming Mercedes.

The van driver was attempting to undertake a black minibus-style vehicle ahead of them, which had already indicated and was about to pull into the middle lane.

The Mercedes driver was also attempting to undertake those in front of them and was forced to drive from the middle lane to the left hand side of the road to avoid ploughing into the minibus.

After breaking heavily, the Mercedes is then seen driving blind into the hard shoulder around a HGV - undertaking three vehicles.

The drama was caught on camera on the M62 approaching Ainley Top between Yorkshire and Greater Manchester.

Wagon driver Dave Smith caught the incident on his dashcam.

He said: “The first thing I thought when it happened what that someone could have been seriously hurt if they’d broken down on the hard shoulder.

“The driver wouldn’t have been able to see them behind because of the HGV. It could have been horrendous - someone could have been killed.

“I drive along the M62 a lot and you seen this kind of thing all too often. It must happen at least a couple of times a day.”
