Reckless Driver Engages in High-Speed Chase on Sacramento’s Business 80

An incident of road rage escalating to dangerous levels was captured on camera this past Friday in Sacramento, California. During the afternoon rush hour near Watt Avenue and eastbound Business 80, a truck driver engaged in aggressive and potentially life-threatening behavior.

According to California Highway Patrol (CHP) spokesman, Officer Ruben Jones, the truck driver’s actions, caught on video, showed a disturbing level of aggression and persistence. The footage captured the truck pursuing a blue car, even as the latter attempted to exit the highway. The truck is seen dangerously weaving through traffic to follow the car, putting himself and others at risk of injury.

Further exacerbating the situation, the truck driver crossed the median in a relentless chase of the car it had targeted. The CHP has expressed great concern over such behaviors on the road, highlighting the severity of potential charges for such acts of road rage. “The charges can range from reckless driving to assault with a deadly weapon, with the latter being a very serious charge,” Jones stated, emphasizing the inherent risks of using a vehicle as a weapon.

CHP advises victims of traffic violence to remain in their vehicles and call 911 if they find themselves pursued. It is recommended to provide dispatchers with the make and model of the aggressor’s vehicle, license plate information, travel direction, and the nearest exit.
