Pickup truck driver forced double trailer truck off road
Road rage attack injures Calgary semi-truck driver
A Calgary truck driver suffered facial lacerations during what police are calling a road rage fueled attack near Gasoline Alley in Red Deer.
At about 8:30 p.m., on June 27, witnesses reported seeing a southbound pickup truck force a double-trailer transport truck off the highway and onto the shoulder of the busy highway. Both vehicles stopped and a man got out of his pickup truck and approached the driver’s side of the semi truck.
The man then started punching the driver’s side window, broke through the glass and continued to attack the driver of the semi.
The suspect then fled the scene, driving through the ditch and west into the north end of Gasoline Alley where he sped away. Police were then called to the scene.
“This appears to be a case of road rage gone wrong,” said Constable Steve Molnar of the Innisfail RCMP Traffic Unit, adding “We’re still trying to determine what occurred to lead up to this incident.” Constable Molnar said that the 37 year old victim from Calgary suffered facial lacerations and was treated and released at the scene by EMS.
The Innisfail RCMP are looking for the suspect who is described as a Caucasian man between 25 and 30 years old. He is approximately 5’9″ tall with an average build. He may be driving a dark blue or black Ford Super-Duty extended cab pickup truck. The truck may have front end damage.
Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the event or may have information to contact the Innisfail Integrated Traffic Unit at (403) 343-4135 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
