    I’m glad he survived, but why the hell did he stop?

    More like kevlar truck panels

    Car cut across the path of the driver in the vid (presuming you could watch something from FB). Driver didnt have a choice about stopping.

    Too bad there isnt more video so we could see what the driver did to offend.

    Article states that the 4-wheeler got mad because the driver changed from the right lane to the left lane in front of them.
    More than likely he probably got over because of the maintenance of way vehicle on the shoulder in the video.
    Basically the 4-wheeler had a “me first mentality”.

    I understand he had to stop, but I meant why didn’t he just run the arsehole -and his car- over once the guy got out of his car with a gun? Seems that would have been a pretty crystal clear case of “lethal force authorized.”

    A lot of people freeze up under pressure
    Looks like it happened pretty quick but I'd have hammered down as soon as the door opened.
    Dude needs to get the death penalty video evidence that literally shows attempted murder

    Might not have seen the gun, the vid stops when dude opens door, might of walked back there, then pulled the pistol out.
    They want to find someone but stop the vid before showing them, typical.

    Good point, I guess it's easy to talk about what I would do in that situation in a hypothetical sense, but I'm sure it's much different when you are actually there in the moment.

    I bet the driver of the 4 wheeler was texting at the time of the truck's lane change. I hope they get caught though
