Argument about woman gets blame for big-rig road rage

Nov. 29, 2012

A recent case of road rage that ended with a semi-truck slamming a pickup into a building in Little Rock, AR, stemmed from an argument about a woman, according to a report by Fox16 News.

A man was in a small pickup truck when he was hit by the semi-truck that pushed the smaller vehicle 40 to 50 ft into a shoe-shine shop, according to Little Rock police. The pickup truck received significant damage and the driver was taken to the hospital. His condition was not immediately known.

The semi-truck driver fled the scene then parked his rig before heading off on foot, noted the police, who are still searching for him.
