The driver of a lifted white Dodge Ram is being sought by the Calgary Police Service after an incident that allegedly saw the vehicle force another off the highway in a fit of road rage.

According to a release from the Calgary Police Service, the alleged incident took place on Thursday, October 3, at around 8:30 pm when two trucks were heading east on Glenmore Trail SE near 52nd Street.

Apparently the drivers engaged in a conflict that escalated to the point where the driver of the white truck intentionally drove into the back of the black truck, police say.

Then the white truck allegedly drove into the incoming traffic lane so that the driver could force the other off the road by sideswiping it — at speeds believed to be around 100 km/h.

The driver of the black truck was not injured, though police are trying to identify the man believed to have been driving the white truck.

The release describes the man as Caucasian, in his early to mid-40s, with a slim build and short hair. The vehicle he was driving is described as “a white 2002 to 2009 Dodge Ram with a 2″ lift kit, a matte black after-market front bush bumper, a black pinstripe around the centre, and multiple red toolboxes in the box.”

Police also note that the vehicle will likely have damage to the front bumper and passenger side as a result of the incident.

Anyone with information on the driver or the vehicle is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service’s non-emergency number of 403-266-1234 or to leave a tip anonymously through Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-8477.
