Everyone was lucky that there was very little traffic ahead of him.

The bit that got me was when he pulled out to overtake the truck that was in front of him ( 1.38 )...that had a trailer on the back, imagine what the result would have been like if he hadn't kept control. And then pulled out to avoid a bus!

Should have kept changing into lower gears and using the engine's compression to brake. Simples! :)
