An alleged incident of road rage on Pat Bay Hwy could have ended in tragedy on Sunday evening.

Dashcam footage shared by Quade Parsons shows a semi-truck, along with several other vehicles, heading north on Pat Bay Highway near Haliburton Road.

About 45 seconds into the video, the semi surges forward and veers into the left lane before swerving towards the van next to it.

“I’m a very active driver and pay attention to a lot and seeing that in my rear view mirror was unbelievable,” said Parsons. “I thought the semi was actually going to hit the van.”

Fortunately there was no contact between the two vehicles, and towards the end of the video, the semi is seen slowing down and falling back.

However according to Parsons, the semi-truck driver “knew full well what he was doing”.
