Coffin-carrying hearse illegally overtakes truck in South West

VideoWatch the moment a hearse, with a coffin in the back, illegally overtakes a truck on Albany Highway.

A hearse, fully equipped with a coffin, has been filmed illegally overtaking a truck on Albany Highway in what could’ve been a ‘deadly’ manoeuvre.

The video, which came from a Fletcher International truck driver’s dash cam, was posted to the Albany Advertiser’s Facebook page on Tuesday where many debated the cold-blooded incident.

“Pretty obvious the hearse would have been half way passed before the line changed to solid,” suggested one user, who argued no laws were broken.

“He’s on his way to joining that coffin in the back,” wrote another.

The video follows Great Southern Police’s backing of dashboard cameras, which they say can help in keeping reckless drivers off the road.
