A Florida woman caught a moment of instant karma Monday when the large truck that had been tailgating her small car spun out and crashed into a medium.

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

      No speculation about it, both were wrong, but more so her. She antagonized him, she would not move and she is supposed to and she sped up when he tried to pass. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passing_lane

      The lady should have moved to the slower lane. If you've lived in Florida, you know how many very old people go 30 or even less and refuse to move over. Doesn't excuse bad driving or the finger unless you're the one that's been behind them for the last 20 minutes trying to get somewhere 5 minutes away!

      once again the media has to use the term "truck driver" for a pick up truck! That's what makes us "real" truck drivers have a bad name with headlines like that.

      This took play in the Tampa area of FL. She was doing 48 in a 55 zone. The problem is, in Florida there are a huge number of areas with left hand and u-turns. She SAID she was going to make a left turn but she spent an awful long time in that lane. Also, it is now against the law in FL. as it is in many states to text and drive at the same time.

      Another idiot in a jacked-up pickup truck who thinks he's King Kong. These inbred morons are everywhere. Great to see him humiliated. Just wish the truck had rolled a few times. Now that would be FUNNY.

      Good...he was wrong. This is not an interstate highway and she had a right to be in the left lane since she was going to turn left. She pulled into a left turning lane very shortly after this happened. He knew he was in the wrong by being a road bully. That's why he ran off. He was clearly in the wrong. Good for her.

      She's a typical Far Left Liberal Agenda Driver, who blames everyone else for her mistakes behind the wheel!! She had enough time, to move over to the right lane, before over taking the two trucks in the right lane! She wanted to have her phone/photo's while driving, a very dangerous maneuver to make, for he U-Tube moment! She had control of the whole scene and caused the accident, by not being a respectful and safe driver! She stopped finally at the side of the right lane, because she thought she was at fault! She should also receive a ticket for deliberately, causing a traffic jam slow down!! She more dangerous than the truck driver! The truck driver needs to take anger management classes!! Shame on her!!
