Police have identified the driver in a near-collision video that went viral last week.

In the video a south-bound truck driver makes an unsafe pass around a snowplow forcing a North-bound truck driver, who captured the pass on a dashboard camera, into a guardrail.

Nipigon OPP announced Thursday that they have identified the South-bound driver as a 31-year-old man from Milton. Charges are pending and his name won't be released until they have been laid.

"It was obvious from the video which has garnered a lot of attention from social media sites that this incident could have easily resulted in much more tragic circumstances," Nipigon OPP detachment commander Randy Bye said in a release.

"I am proud of the dedicated work from the members of this detachment that resulted in the successful conclusion of this investigation and and grateful for the concern this case has received from the public."
