Video: Truck Flies Off Freeway In Possible Road-Rage Incident
A man captured a frightening video on his dashcam of a truck losing control and flying over a freeway in Fontana before crashing into a car dealership. He believes it may have been a road rage-related incident.
The incident was recorded on Brian Kwong's dashcam as he was driving eastbound on the 210 Freeway near Sierra Avenue on Wednesday around 7 a.m., according to The San Bernardino Sun. In the video, a truck can be seen veering left across the lanes before spinning to the right and clipping a black car. It sends the car spinning in circles before the truck flies up and over an embankment.
The truck landed in the Rock Honda dealership, damaging 11 cars, Officer Jesus Garcia of the California Highway Patrol’s Inland Division told KTLA. A tweet from the San Bernardino County Fire Department showed firefighters extricating the driver from the truck, saying that the driver was suffering from major injuries. The driver was taken to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton, Garcia told KTLA. It's not clear what his current condition is.
Kwong told The San Bernardino Sun that he believes the incident stemmed from road rage. "In my opinion, it was a road-rage incident," Kwong said. "I heard some honking after the Mustang cut the truck off and the truck wasn’t too happy about it. That led to the truck trying to speed pass [sic] the other car. I was a little scared because they almost hit me."
