More details + watch the viral video below…
A woman caught a ‘road rage’ incident on tape and it appears that the man who was enraged and throwing her the finger actually ended up loosing control of his vehicle!
The man was reportedly uninjured in the crash, but his ego may take a while to recover.
The footage was uploaded to the Web and has since gone viral and the woman, who asked to remain anonymous, spoke to news station WTSP to give her side of the story.
The woman explained that she sped up to match the speed limit increase on that section of road. She says she was driving safely, keeping an eye on her mirrors and the road.
The same can’t be said for the pickup driver, who, as soon as he passes, promptly spins out and lands in the grassy median, inspiring the woman to laugh victoriously and say, “That’s what you get! All on video, buddy.”
The video has created an uproar on the Web. Some have praised the woman for capturing the driver’s bad behavior on video. However, others contend she herself played a part in the incident.
The man drove away from the accident, but thanks to the woman’s video, police say they were able to track him down.
Jeffrey White, the driver of the pickup, was charged with leaving the scene, reckless driving and failure to wear a seat belt.
The woman who filmed it all says she hopes some good would come of the incident and the man would take the opportunity to improve as a driver.
