Bizarre Road Rage Report Sparks Police Investigation

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Metro Police are looking for a semi truck driver involved in a road rage incident.

Investigators said it's surprising no one got hurt, as all signs pointed to a driver who just lost control, not of his vehicle but his emotions.

"We just need to encourage people if they get upset or uptight during driving, just calm down and recognize that it's just a traffic right now and then everything will be fine a little bit later," said Metro Police Department Commander Paul Trickey.

The incident reportedly happened last month around rush hour on Sidco Drive and East Thompson Lane. Metro Police said the victim was in the right lane trying to go straight but was stopped at the red light. The victim told investigators that's when a semi truck driver yelled at him to turn right.

When he didn't comply, he says the semi pushed on his bumper and physically moved him out of the lane and then drove off.

"A semi with this reported Honda vehicle, it was fortunate that nobody was injured that we're aware of and there wasn't any ongoing traffic, where the vehicle could've hit into it, so at least nobody was hurt," said Trickey.

Police believe they have some pictures of the semi truck they will be looking at. The victim was unharmed and the car had little damage.

Anyone who may have seen this incident is asked to call Metro Police at (615) 74-CRIME.
