Road Rage Attack Caught on Cell Video

downloadRoad rage is never a good situation to find oneself in. However, a quick thinking motorist in Conover, North Carolina used the camera feature on his cellphone to capture video footage of a road rage incident that unfolded right in front of him.

Dustin Curtis posted his video on his Facebook page and also took it to local authorities.

The incident happened while Curtis was on Highway 70 last week when he witnessed two SUVs apparently trying to cut each other off in traffic.

While he was watching he thought that the situation should be recorded so he grabbed his cellphone and started shooting what was happening in front of him.

Shown in the video clip is a white Blazer and a black Lexus SUV driving around each other with the drivers occasionally slamming the brakes. According to witnesses, one driver cut the other off, and they pursued each other for more than a mile.

“The incident ended when one vehicle, the black Lexus SUV pulled in front of the Blazer, causing an accident. The vehicles collided then both spun out in the roadway.

The drivers confronted each other but there was no assault between the two drivers. One of the drivers asked Curtis to hand over the cellphone video, but Curtis refused and gave it to police instead.

Police in Conover have filed charges against both drivers. The two motorists are identified as. Ryan Gregory, 23, of Hudson, and Jeffrey Burkey, 64, of Davidson. The two drivers were cited and given a summons to appear in court on reckless driving charges.

Thankfully, no one was hurt in this particular incident. Aggressive drivers put other motorists at danger when they act out their aggression behind the wheel. Taking out stress, anxiety or anger on other drivers is never the right solution. With drivers focused solely on their anger and who was “right”, this situation escalated into something that could have potentially turned tragic.
