Semi truck driver arrested, suspected of road rage

A case of road rage lands one man in jail. Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers stopped the driver of a semi near Bristow on the Turner Turnpike after getting a call from a man in a car.

He told authorities the truck was pushing him, and they were going 110-miles per hour. A few minutes later a trooper clocked the truck going 95. He managed to get the truck pulled over.

Trooper Sheridan O’Neal, “the potential for danger was enormous there. There was a girl in the car and the gentleman’s friend. If they would have crashed at 95 miles an hour with a semi behind them uh, there's no telling what could have happened.”

The semi-truck driver was arrested and faces charges. Troopers say the man apparently was unhappy with the driver of the car who slowed to the speed limit in a construction area in Oklahoma City.
