THE hair-raising moment a driver pulled out in front of oncoming cars at a notorious junction where a motorcyclist was killed just weeks earlier has been captured on camera.

Robert Knowles captured the scene on his dash-cam as he drove along Larch Avenue in Worsley Hall. It shows the driver of the other vehicle pulling out without checking for oncoming traffic, narrowly avoiding a crash.

Mr Knowles handed the footage over to the Wigan Evening Post to make people aware of the dangers of the road.

He said: “This sort of thing happens far too much. I was leaving our house on Larch Avenue and was going up to Sherwood Drive at around 20mph when the driver of a car pulled out without looking.”

Motorcyclist Tommy McGuirk died following a crash on the road last month.
