The video shows a dark-colored Chevrolet Cruze pulling up alongside a car as the driver begins to shout obscenities at the driver, presumably over a prior driving offense. Distracted by his tirade, the Cruze driver slams into the back of an innocent Chevrolet Bolt EV, which was sitting stationary at a traffic light behind a row of other cars.
According to Global News, the crash involved four vehicles in total. Considering the speed with which the Cruze hit the Bolt EV, it seems safe to assume the two other cars involved were hit by the Bolt after it was propelled forward. Ridge Meadows RCMP confirmed that a woman was taken to hospital with minor injuries as a result of the crash. Police would not confirm if the crash was the result of road rage, pending an investigation, however they did arrest one man at the scene.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV that was sacrificed in this crash is one of the rather odd Shock colored models. Shock was only offered for the 2019 model year and shockingly, it wasn’t carried over for the updated 2020 model. We can’t imagine many Bolt EVs left the factory painted Shock yellow to begin with, but now it seems as though the color just became even less common on the electric hatchback.
You can see how this rather senseless road rage incident played out in the video embedded below. The Cruze driver uses some choice language before slamming his reasonably priced compact into the back of the EV, so if you’re at the office or out in public, you may want to grab some headphones or turn down the volume before hitting play.
