Stomper Deb's father nearly ran over a monkey that had suddenly jumped out from nowhere and then dashed across the road.

The incident occurred on Sep 23 at around 6pm at the BKE exit towards the PIE.

Deb said: "This was taken from my father's dashcam footage. I used my phone to film it from our computer, am an uploading on his behalf."

In the video, the monkey can be seen jumping out from some bushes along the central road divider and then dashing out in front of oncoming traffic.

Fortunately, it was quick and ran across the road in no time, successfully evading any vehicles.
