The out-of-context video has been worrisome for some members of the trucking community, but it’s actually a couple of years old.

The truck shooting took place on November 14, 2019, in Fife, Washington after a semi truck driver rear-ended a sedan traveling on southbound I-5 on ramp.

The sedan driver then fired multiple rounds at the semi truck, but no none was hurt and the shooter was taken into police custody without incident.
