Monday: POLICE say a man is "lucky to be alive" after a truck allegedly nearly wiped his car out on the Princes Highway.
They are calling for any witnesses, or the truck driver, to come forward.
Leading Senior Constable Chad McKenzie from Portland police said a driver was "shaken" after he was run off the road by a B-double on Monday.
Police are looking for a truck heading west on Princes Highway between Yambuk and Tyrendarra around 12.45pm today.
The truck was a B-double with large tippers, possibly carrying bark chip, Leading Constable McKenzie said.
"It pulled out past the driver to overtake and when cars appeared it didn't have time to get in safely so it just pulled back in," he said.
"The driver of the car said it was going to hit him so he braked and pulled off the road into the gravel.
"One tipper has a gross weight of around 45 tonnes, so double that and it's an enormous amount of weight to take up against a little car.
"The poor fella was shaken, he's lucky to be alive."
Leading Senior Constable McKenzie said police were appealing for witnesses who may have seen the incident to contact Portland police.
"In general truck drivers need to be mindful of not tailgating," he said.
