Road rage suspected in Highway 6 accident

LUMBY - Police believe a case of road rage may have been behind the actions of a driver who they say forced another driver off the road on Highway 6.

The driver of a black pickup truck forced a white pickup truck off the road February 27, with the suspect driver then pounding on the window of the white truck, demanding it be opened or he would smash it, according to an RCMP media release. Police were told the suspect was screaming and making threats.

Mounties say it appears there was a long running dispute between the two.

Police found the 45-year-old suspect driver who is from Vernon and arrested him. He's charged with dangerous driving and uttering threats. He was released on a promise to appear in court.
