The video shows the moment a car hits the farm vehicle as it turned off the Tullamore to Geashill road on Friday afternoon. The car was overtaking a number of vehicles when the accident occurred.

Gardaí say the accident occurred shortly before 3.30pm on Friday, July 10. 

The driver of the car, a man in his 40s, was taken to Tullamore Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

The video was captured by dashcam footage on a truck in the line of traffic behind the tractor. It was uploaded to Reddit at the weekend.
