The Unintended Accident Victim of Road Rage
Even if you are not directly involved, it is easy to become caught up in the aftermath. A recent road rage incident in California clearly shows how motorists can become involved in the madness.
The Mad Road Rage Story
A passenger in a car traveling on the freeway managed record an incident of pure road rage between a motorcyclist and a driver on a Southern California freeway, which resulted in a chain-reaction crash. The video, available on NBC4 News in Los Angeles, shows a driver of a car having just cut off a motorcyclist after a lane change.
In response, the motorcyclist gassed it to the driver’s side of the car and kicked the car. The car’s driver quickly responded by wildly swerving, nearly crashing the motorcycle. However, instead of crashing into the bike, the car hits the freeway median barrier and bounces back through the lanes of traffic. The vehicle then crashes into a pick up truck, causing it to flip and rest upside down. The motorcyclist drove away without injury. The only injured victim in this accident was the pickup driver, who found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time.
