Oh how satisfying.
It’s never a good idea to get mad and act out as you’re driving a two-ton machine at speeds over 50 mph. For some strange reason, people tend to get angrier and more aggressive while they are behind the wheel of a 4,000-lb. weapon. Luckily, one F-250 driver with road rage got hit with some instant Karma after his idiotic actions.
In Tampa, Florida, one driver was in the left lane of a two-lane road and being tailgated by a Ford F-250 driver. According to the driver being tailgated, they could not move over into the right lane because of traffic and they were planning on turning in the left lane soon. But that wasn’t good enough for the F-250.
The mad F-250 driver sped around and passed before slowing down and showing off his middle finger. Then he decided to speed up and pass again into the left lane. Well, he didn’t account for the slick, wet roads and he lost control of his truck before crashing. To make matters worse, he fled the scene because he really wanted to make this week’s Friday FAIL. Luckily, the police were able to catch him thanks to the video.
Here’s the account of the events from the video uploader:
“This happened to me on SR 41 in Tampa on Monday March 24th. This pathetic excuse for a human being tailgated me for about three minutes. After about a minute, and me shaking my head, I pulled out my phone and started recording. I couldn’t move over because there were trucks in the right lane, and I sure as heck wasn’t going to speed on a rainy day with the roads being as slick as they were. I was turning left in about a half-mile when this happened. Now bear in mind, that this guy had already passed a truck in a left turn lane, was tailgating and driving recklessly on a wet slick road, wasn’t paying attention, and all in all being an ignorant ass.
In the full video which I will post later, you will be able to see that not once was I mouthing off, I never brake checked him, and in fact until I watched the video after the accident I didn’t even know he shot a bird at me because I wasn’t looking at him at all, I was paying attention to the road while holding the phone up with my right hand. I’ve recorded circumstances like this before, catching idiots doing stupid things, but never ever had this happen.
He initially fled the scene of the accident, but thanks to this video he has been caught and charged. Massive props to the Sheriffs Department and most especially the Highway Patrol who responded to the scene. This moron could have easily killed somebody with his moronic behavior, and my laughing at the end would have been replaced with tears. Needless to say though, I’ve never seen Karma come back so fast.”
Don’t tailgate and act like idiots on the road, folks.
