A Mercedes driver got a painful lesson about the consequences of cutting off trucks after his vehicle was pushed a mile down I-35 in San Antonio yesterday afternoon. The series of short videos was captured by motorist Adrian Lopez, who told Kare11 they were captured around 1 p.m. in the northbound lanes of I-35 near downtown San Antonio, Texas.
Lopez says that the incident began when the Mercedes driver cut off the truck while merging onto the interstate. Lopez says that the truck pushed the Mercedes for almost a mile, but that he believes the truck driver was doing everything in his power to make sure that the incident ended without anyone getting hurt:
“I think the truck driver made a really good decision. You could tell he looked frustrated, but he kept it under control and he knew what he was doing to make sure no one else got hurt.”
The Mercedes driver was taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries. San Antonio police confirmed that the truck driver did not initially notice the Mercedes but that he pulled over as soon as he realized something was wrong.
