It didn't take long for the video to go viral, and now a Milton man is facing a list of charges in connection with a 'near collision'.

The incident happened on Highway 11 in Northern Ontario at the start of January, but the video didn't surface until last week.

In it, you can hear the panicked voice of the driver who, as he rounds a curve, only to see another transport in his lane, passing a snowplow.

The driver of the truck avoids a catastrophe, but does make contact with the guard rail at the side of the road.

Provincial Police say the 31 year old driver of the other truck is now facing charges that include careless driving, failing to remain at the scene of the collision and failing to report the collision.

He's been identified as Akmal Hayat.
