Double-semi road rage incident leads to charges for both drivers


Two truckers have been charged this week after a mid-December road rage incident got the cops called on them. 

The incident occurred on December 17th, but the two drivers involved were not charged until Wednesday, March 9th in Millard County, Utah. 

According to KSL News, police responded to Interstate 15 in Millard County after receiving calls reporting that two truck drivers were continuously cutting each other off and had stopped at a gas station in Scipio. An officer arrived to find one trucker pounding on the cab of the other driver’s rig while the second driver sat inside of it. 

One driver told the officer that he had attempted to pass the other driver on the left shoulder of the interstate after they had continuously cut each other off, but was run off the road and into the media. The second driver also claimed that he had been run off the road. Both trucks had damage indicative of contact with each other on the highway. 

Both unnamed men were charged in 4th District court on Wednesday. A 42-year-old man from Sunset was charged with aggravated assault – a third degree felony – while the second driver, a 54-year-old man from Clearfield, was charged with reckless endangerment – a class A misdemeanor.
