British truckie launches 'unbelievable' road rage attack
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.
The truck driver then asked for the other's insurance details.

"Luckily neither of the men were seriously injured however they have been left terrified by the incident."
