Driver uses spade in road rage at­tack

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A VI­O­LENT driver left two men “ter­ri­fied” af­ter he de­lib­er­ately re­versed his truck into a lorry and smashed a win­dow with a spade in a road rage at­tack.

The in­ci­dent, caught on CCTV, hap­pened af­ter two ve­hi­cles col­lided as they ac­cessed a mo­tor­way.

Footage shows two men in a large lorry and a man in a pick-up truck on the M62 in Ec­cles ex­chang­ing num­bers on the hard shoul­der, just be­fore the abuse started.

Wear­ing a yel­low high-vis all-in-one, the truck driver can be seen row­ing with one of the men then wrestling him to­wards the lorry.

He then re­verses his truck into the lorry be­fore he tries to pull off the wing mir­ror.

Af­ter try­ing to get into the cabin, the man heads over to his truck and re­trieves a spade and smashes the driver’s win­dow with it.

PC John Ca­vanagh, of Greater Manchester Po­lice, said it was an “un­be­liev­able” at­tack and ap­pealed for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion.

He said: “Nei­ther of the men were in­jured, how­ever they have been left ter­ri­fied.” PI­GEON breed­ing and skinny jeans are both banned by ISIS.
