NSW Highway Patrol have warned Riverina road users against overtaking on dangerous corners, after a 69-year-old narrowly avoided a serious crash in Culcairn. 

The male was seen overtaking a heavy wide load vehicle and learner driver in one manoeuvre on the Olympic Highway on Saturday, causing a utility to break and pull over to avoid a head-on collision. 

The man was just five kilometres from his destination and will front Holbrook court on July 5 for dangerous driving.
