Semi Driver Forces Car Off Road

Occurred on February 18, 2019 / Dublin, Virginia, USA

Info from Licensor: "We were headed north on I-81 near Dublin, Virginia when we passed a tractor-trailer. As soon as we passed him, he turned on his high beams, so we flashed our high beams to show him that we had not high beamed him and we were running on low beams. He never turned his high beams down so we fell back out of his high beams and flashed our high beams so that way he could see that we did not have our high beams on while passing him. At this time, I started recording. That is when he ran us off the road he did not turn on his blinker, he just proceeded to fully come into our lane. Nothing was in front of him or behind him. There was nothing on the shoulder of the road. There was no reason for him to come over. As you can see in the video, he ran us off the road but we managed to keep the vehicle under control and get back on the road. So as soon as we got back on the road, I called 911 and they transferred me to the highway patrol. He proceeded to tell me that we were passing the 105 and they no longer had jurisdiction past the 105 so he transferred me to the next county up, who was supposed to have jurisdiction. When I requested someone come out, they only put out a bolo and would not take a full report. I also contacted the company and sent them the video to let them know that their driver had just run a car off the road. The company said that they would give the driver a verbal warning and possibly let him go."
