North Cowichan Duncan RCMP are asking the community for help to identify a truck and its driver in relation to a road rage incident near Chemainus.

Police received a call at approximately 4:30 p.m. on November 24 from a driver who was headed northbound on the Trans Canada Highway.

The driver said that as he was approaching Chemainus in the left lane, another vehicle was tailgating him and flashing its high beams.

When both vehicles came to a stop at the red light at Henry Road, the male driver of the tailgating vehicle exited his truck and hit the window of the caller’s vehicle, causing it to shatter.

When the light turned green, the suspect driver turned onto Smiley Road and fled. The incident left the caller with minor injuries.

The suspect’s truck is described as a white Ford F150 with a caved-in front bumper. It had an unknown logo on the side and may have been a crew cab. The license plate number is not known.

The suspect driver is described as a thin white man with patchy facial hair.

The RCMP advise that people involved in a road rage incident do not respond with anger or aggression to the other driver.

Drivers should stay in a public area, avoid confronting other people involved, and either ask a passenger or use voice command to call 911 if you are concerned for your safety.

Anyone with information about the identity of the vehicle or person involved in this incident is asked to call the police.
