VIDEO: Terrifying footage when a car spins out of control in South West Iceland

Only a few centimetres separated Friðrik Helgi Friðriksson's car from a vehicle that had spun out of control and headed straight towards him on Vesturlandsvegur yesterday during the storm. 

As you can see in the video captured of the event which occured in Kollafjörður, Friðriksson had a very narrow escape from a massive car crash.
