Ontario Provincial Police say they have a 31-year-old man in custody for nearly crashing head-on into another tractor trailer driver.

Authorities say the driver of a northbound semi came around a curve to see another semi attempting to pass a snow plow in a no passing zone.

The northbound driver swerved to avoid a collision and struck several guard posts before coming to a stop.

The incident happened in Greenstone, about four hours north of Thunder Bay.

The video of the near-tragic collision has gone viral on several social media sites, and helped authorities locate the driver at fault in the incident on Thursday.

A 31-year-old Milton, Ontario man is being held on a violation of the Ontario Highway Traffic Act.

Formal charges are still pending.
