    They should be able to identify the truck easy enough by the trailer tag. The truck owner and/or driver who is pulling the trailer should be made to pay for all medical and repairs of those who crashed as a result.

    This is why lots of companies are going to managed dash cam systems in their entire fleet. This type of behavior is becoming too common place.

    Probably the camera truck did something earlier to piss this guy off but this kind of retaliation is never warranted.

    It won’t take long. Chicagoland tollways are under heavy camera surveillance,it’s a matter of time (remember the driver that was shot on I-88 last year).

    The guy who completely stopped in the middle lane and caused all of this havoc is toast. Not only will he have criminal penalties to deal with, there will be many civil lawsuits as well, to him personally and his company.

    What shocking is the swift driver actually driving good at the beginning of the video and wasn't involved.

    This is absolutely ridiculous.

    Why would you do this?

    You’ve not only caused more inconvenience and anguish on yourself but your family, company, and everyone else involved with you or that area. Tow drivers, police, ambulances, etc...
