Truck Driver Experiences Instant Karma In Road Rage Video
Tailgating driver loses control of truck after speeding down slick road
The driver of the truck, 33-year-old Jeffrey White, tailgated the woman for at least three minutes down the 41 in Tampa, Fla., according to WTSP 10. White's driving was so erratic that after the first minute she began 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," she wrote on YouTube. "I was turning left in about a half-mile when this happened."
She kept her cool when he passed her on the right and flashed her a rude hand gesture. A moment later he cuts her off and immediately begins to fishtail. In the video, White's truck spins out and crashes facing the opposite direction on a grassy median, the female driver laughing the entire time.
Road rage is a serious problem on American roadways. In a recent survey, conducted by the AAA Foundation, of 3,147 American drivers, 55.1 percent of respondents said that aggressive drivers are a "very serious" threat to their personal safety and 33 percent said they were a "somewhat serious" threat. Hopefully the more than three million people who have viewed the video will drive with more courtesy now that they know karma is real, and sometimes immediate.
White then fled the scene on foot. Troopers arrested White on Wednesday at his Tampa home. He's been charged with leaving the scene of a traffic crash, careless driving and failing to wear his seatbelt
