A YouTube user going by the username Florida Driver posted this video Wednesday, saying that she’d been tailed by an angry truck driver for three minutes.
“After about a minute, and me shaking my head, I pulled out my phone and started 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. I was turning left in about a half-mile when this happened,” the driver wrote.
“Now bear in mind, that this guy had already passed a truck in a left turn lane, was tailgating and driving recklessly on a wet slick road, wasn’t paying attention, and all in all being an ignorant [a**]. In the full video which I will post later, you will be able to see that not once was I mouthing off, I never brake checked him, and in fact until I watched the video after the accident I didn’t even know he [gave me the middle finger] because I wasn’t looking at him at all, I was paying attention to the road while holding the phone up with my right hand.”
Just after the man driving the black Ford pickup truck passed the driver and changed lanes, he lost control and spun out into a grassy median.
“That’s what you get!” the woman yelled as she passed the man by.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has charged the pick up truck driver, 33-year-old Jefferey Travis White of Tampa, with Leaving the Scene of a Crash.
“Florida Driver” continues writing on YouTube: “He initially fled the scene of the accident, but thanks to this video he has been caught and charged. Massive props to the Sheriffs Department and most especially the Highway Patrol who responded to the scene.”
“Needless to say though, I’ve never seen Karma come back so fast.”
The woman who shot the video will not be charged, according to the sheriff’s office.
