San Francisco Personal Injury Attorneys: Richmond Road Rage

    Driving on the freeways of California can be a very frustrating experience.  For many people, the stop and go nature of traffic jams can make people upset, and occasionally even the smallest bother can set off them off.  Road rage can be ignited at any time on the roadways, and the effects of it can drive otherwise calm people into very angry and very dangerous drivers.  Such a case happened earlier today in Richmond, which led to fatal results.
    At approximately 5:45am this morning, a man was driving on I-80 near Richmond.  According to testimony taken by the CHP, the man was driving a brown minivan.  Apparently, he had been made upset by the driver of a white pickup truck in another lane.  As such, in order to catch up with the man, the driver of the van weaved through traffic in order to catch up with his quarry.  Once he got near enough he zoomed ahead of the truck and “brake-checked” it, meaning that he swerved in front of the car and then braked immediately, so as to unnerve the other driver.  However, the driver of the truck tried to get out of the way of the braking vehicle, and in doing so clipped the side of the van.  The van, pushed from the force of the impact, rolled over several times.  The driver of the van did not survive the ordeal, which spewed car parts all over the road.
    CHP officials are still on the scene in Richmond, where they are attempting to move the wreck off of the roadway.  They also issued a reminder to people to calmly drive, and to not be motivated into putting other people in danger through risky driving maneuvers and taunting.  The results at high speeds can very often be fatal, as seen in this case.
