British truckie launches 'unbelievable' road rage attack video

WARNING, CONTAINS VIOLENCE: CCTV captures a horrifying moment in which two men in a lorry are attacked by a man in a pick-up truck on the M62 in Eccles, London.

CCTV footage has emerged of a British truck driver launching a terrifying attack on a fellow motorist after he asked for his insurance details after a collision on a UK motorway.

The footage of the road rage incident near Manchester shows the angry driver pulling the other driver into a headlock, ramming his car into the truck and smashing the truck's windows with a shovel while the driver and a passenger are trapped inside.

Greater Manchester Police Community Support Officer John Cavanagh said the argument between the drivers began after they collided while driving between two different motorways in northern England on November 9.
