WATCH: Dashcam footage shows motorway crash

FOOTAGE shared on Facebook site Dash Cam Owners Australia has revealed just why drivers need to take care on the roads over long weekends.

The driver filming the incident was travelling in the left lane on Ipswich Motorway on Saturday at 10.30am when another car tried to merge into the same lane.

The cars collided just before the Esk/Toowoomba exit heading towards Ipswich, with the merging vehicle turning completely on its side.

Both cars regained control and pulled over on the side of the highway at Dinmore.
