A 57-year old man was arrested in Winnipeg, Manitoba last week for repeatedly ramming his Chevy Colorado pickup truck into a Hyundai Elantra with two people inside of it during a suspected road rage incident.
According to the CBC, Kiana Jobo was attempting to take a left turn in her Hyundai Elantra when the driver of the white Chevy Colorado suddenly approached her vehicle while it was in the intersection. The man then began acting irate and making obscene gestures toward her before she took off down a nearby side street. The Colorado driver gave chase, repeatedly ramming her small Korean compact car from behind as she tried to evade.
“It was like a game of cat and mouse. It was honestly the most terrifying experience in my life,” she told the CBC in an interview. “What was going through my mind was that I am going to die. My dad is going to die.”
Jobo eventually managed to park her car between two vehicles so the Chevy Colorado driver could no longer ram her from behind. That’s when she pulled out her phone to begin filming his behavior and caught him repeatedly side-swiping her vehicle on video.
After the driver left, Jobo drove to a local police station to report the incident. The suspect, who has not been named, was arrested and booked on one count of dangerous operation of a vehicle. Jobo thinks he should be charged for attempted murder, but the local police seem to believe this dangerous driver may have only violated a few traffic-related laws.
“I think that as a community, everybody has a right to know that this person is out here, is a danger, is a menace to society,” Jobo told the CBC. “I would not have been here today, had I not gotten away.”
