New video shows road rage battle that led to semi shooting during Ohio Trump parade


Video captured by traffic cameras shows the events leading up to an interstate shooting last weekend during a Trump rally in Ohio.

The road rage incident began around 10:40 a.m. on Saturday, October 3, in Hilliard, Ohio while several vehicles were traveling on I-270 as part of a political rally for President Trump.

The Hilliard Police Department said that they received a call from an unnamed semi truck driver who reported that a man in a black Ford F-150 pickup had opened fire on his truck as the two vehicles were traveling north on I-270.

Fortunately, no one was injured.

The pickup driver, fifty-eight year old Todd Crawford turned himself into police a few hours after the shooting. He was charged with discharge of a firearm over a highway.

Crawford later told police that as he was participating in the rally, the semi truck driver struck his pickup, causing him to open fire on the semi out of fear for his own safety.

The truck driver denied this claim, admitting to heckling parade participants, but saying that he did not strike Crawford’s pickup.

Video captured by Ohio Department of Transportation cameras shows what appears to be road rage as the two vehicles maneuver around one another.
