Bobtail Goes Ballistic On I-10
Phoenix, Arizona – A shocking road rage confrontation between a truck driver and a passenger vehicle on I-10 in Phoenix was caught on a motorist’s dash cam. The motorist shared the video with ABC15.com and what it reveals is bizarre.
This incident took place “a couple of weeks ago” according to the report. You will see a small 4-door vehicle being aggressively cut off by a bobtail semi forcing the vehicle to stop and blocking traffic. The semi driver then gets out of his truck and begins to confront the driver of the passenger vehicle at the driver’s side window.
ABC15 contacted the trucking company, Turbo Express from Niles, Illinois, and the trucking company president, John Dudzik, sent the news operation a letter standing by the actions of their driver. The driver of the passenger vehicle allegedly pointed a gun at the driver of the semi and other drivers, according to the trucking company’s statement to ABC15. Mr. Dudzik claims the video shows other drivers stopping also in an attempt to prevent the driver from firing the gun.
The letter also claims that when the truck driver confronted the alleged gun-wielding driver, it was discovered the gun was a plastic gun. Mr. Dudzik’s letter states the incident will be reported to the “proper authorities.” As of this report, the incident has not been reported.
Further, the letter makes it clear that neither the trucking company nor the driver consent to the release of the video because “the video is only part of the story” and “puts our driver in a bad spot.”
The news channel, having obtained the video and consent from the motorist who filmed the incident, is under no obligation to withhold the release of the images.
