An apparent road rage incident between the driver of a sedan and a motorcyclist quickly spiraled out of control in Santa Clarita, California, on Wednesday.
Tim Morrison and Chris Traber were on their way to work when they saw the driver of a silver sedan cut in front of a motorcyclist on the 14 Freeway.
The incident continued to escalate between the two motorists, so Traber decided to start recording on his cellphone, reports KTLA 5.
In the video, the motorcyclist appears to try to kick the sedan on the right. In response, the sedan veers to the left and briefly collides with the motorcyclist before losing control and crashing into the highway divider wall.
The momentum from the crash caused the sedan to lose control and veer toward the middle lane of the highway, where it collided with a white Cadillac pickup truck, causing the truck to overturn.
After the crash, Traber called 911 and stayed on the scene until first responders arrived.
Another witness pulled 75-year-old Carlos Benavidez, the driver of the overturned pickup truck, out of his vehicle.
Benavidez told CBS News he can’t believe he walked away from the crash.
“I saw my world coming to an end… to be honest with you,” Benavidez said. “When I felt the impact and the truck spun out from beside me and I started to roll, I saw nothing but asphalt and sky.”
Southern California police are looking for the motorcyclist, who did not stop following the crash. Authorities are investigating the incident as a hit-and-run.
