Road Rage Leads to Chain-Reaction Multi-Vehicle Collision

According to California Highway Patrol officials, they have recently arrested a motorcyclist for a road-rage incident which apparently set off a chain reaction of collisions last summer. In video footage shot by a witness, which later went viral on social media, the 45-year-old appears to be seen kicking a sedan, causing it to swerve while driving on the 14 Freeway in June. After the sedan driver was forced to swerve from the motorcycle, it struck the center divider, spun back into the traffic, and collided with a pickup truck. As seen on video, this collision led to the pickup truck flipping over, inflicting moderate injuries on the driver. The motorcycle’s rider now faces three felony charges – assault with a deadly weapon, reckless driving, and hit-and-run, and has been released on $110,000 bail.
