This footage shows a Romanian lorry driver revving up behind a frightened young family in a car and coming dangerously close like something out of Terminator 2, blaring his horn at them as they call the police.

As seen in the video footage, the concerned parents called the police as the lorry tailgated them along the N-121-A main road in the northern Spanish region of Navarre.

Following the incident, the local police reportedly fined the Romanian lorry driver, who lives in the southern Spanish region of Andalusia, 500 EUR (428 GBP) and deducted six points off his licence.

The police were able to penalise the driver thanks to the video filmed by the young family in the car.

In the footage, the lorry is seen revving up behind the car as they reportedly drive at the maximum limit of 120 kph (75 mph) through a tunnel.

The lorry driver then repeatedly flashes his lights and blares his horn while driving close behind the car and frightening a young girl inside.

The child is heard saying: “He is crazy.”

Meanwhile, the parents call the cops and report the dangerous driver and their location on the road.

The mother says: “I am super nervous, a lorry is tailgating us and my heart is beating out of my chest.”

According to local media, the parents were travelling with two young children at the time.

The unnamed lorry driver was stopped by the police shortly afterwards near the town of Sunbilla.

Local police compared the scary scene to the 1971 Steven Spielberg thriller ‘Dual’ in which the protagonist is pursued by a terrifying lorry.

The scene is also reminiscent of Terminator 2: Judgment Day when the T-1000 pursues John Connor in a lorry.
