The driver of a 2017 Honda Civic came within inches of rear-ending a VW Golf at high speeds in a near-miss that could have been avoided.

YouTuber Morty Smith was on the German Autobahn last month when he was recording a video about his Civic’s fuel efficiency. Onboard video reveals that he was approaching a number of cars in the slower-moving right lane while travelling at up to 213 km/h (132 mph) along a two-lane section.

The YouTuber initially passes a van without incident, but a black VW Golf in the right lane begins to signal before switching into the Civic’s fast lane. The Honda driver, who only has a split second to react, slams on the brakes at 207 km/h (128 km/h) to avoid hitting the VW in the rear. The Honda loses speed quickly, and the owner narrowly avoided colliding with the VW by swerving into the right lane at the last second.

The video Shows that the Honda’s collision avoidance system was engaged during the close call, but the driver claims in the comments that he was the one who actually applied all of the brakes and that the system was unable to react as quickly as he did. He further asserts that the VW’s driver was oblivious to his fast-approaching presence because she was absorbed in her phone.

The VW Golf was reportedly moving at a speed of about 110 km/h (68 mph) at the time, and the Honda driver would not have intervened if he had been moving at a speed of almost 100 km/h (62 mph) faster. This might have caused a serious collision that would have injured both drivers, if not more.
