Cellphone Video Shows Alleged Road Rage Crash


Two men on their way to work in Santa Clarita, California witnessed an alleged case of road rage which led to multiple cars crashing on the 14 Freeway.

Details of the Violent Collision

According to the Washington Post, Chris Taber and Tim Morrison were driving to work on June 21st when a motorcycle and a silver sedan drove past them at high speeds. The two men decided to film what was happening in front of them.

The video shows the motorcyclist driving up alongside the silver sedan and kicking the side of the car. Then, the sedan suddenly veers towards the motorcyclist and hits a cement guard wall. Upon hitting the wall, the sedan rebounds off and slams directly into a white pickup truck, causing the pickup to flip over in the middle of the highway.

Nobody was killed in the crash, but the driver of the pickup sustained some injuries.

A report from ABC7 with a statement from California Highway Patrol officer Josh Greengard states that the motorcyclist fled the scene of the incident, so it’s “technically a hit-and-run”. The officer said that they would like all sides of the story to put together what led to the crash, and to find a definitive cause.
