Road Rage Video Goes Viral: Angry Driver Crashes
Most of us have experienced being on the road with someone who is either angry or in a hurry and tails and/or harasses you in some way.
Heck, many of us have been guilty of “road rage” ourselves a time or two, but this woman who experienced a dose of rage on a Florida highway got it all on video. A YouTube video which has gone viral as of noon Friday, with over four million views.
According to the video, the offending driver had being tailgating for quite some time in a big truck, making this videographer quite uncomfortable.
The offended driver, going by the username Florida Driver on YouTube, said that she’d been tailed by the truck driver for three minutes.
According to the “Florida Driver” after the incident and being flipped off as he brazenly drove past her, she got to see “instant karma” happen right before her eyes — and she caught it on camera.

“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,” the driver wrote.
“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 [a**]. 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,” the driver continued.
Just after the man driving the black Ford pickup truck passed this driver and changed lanes, he lost control and spun out into a grassy median.
“That’s what you get,” the woman filming yelled as she laughed. Now to some, that might appear controversial to laugh at someone who has just been in an accident, however, it was apparent the driver in the crash wasn’t seriously injured. According to “Florida Driver” he fled the scene, however with her trusty video, police were able to identify and charge him.
“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,” the videographer wrote.
