This will be an interesting case to follow, if for no other reason than to find out what really happened. Apparently – from very early reports – a guy in a truck was attempting to merge onto I-95 and a guy in a Jaguar did not make what the truck driver considered adequate room for the truck driver to get onto the highway. So the truck driver proceeded to SMASH INTO the Jaguar numerous times while the two were driving up the highway. Somehow both vehicles ended up on the left shoulder, whereupon the guy in the Jaguar started shooting at the truck with his legally-owned pistol.

When I first heard about this on the radio, from the way it was reported I thought “there is a guy who should not have a firearm.” You are not supposed to shoot at other vehicles because of highway disputes, you are just supposed to get away from vehicles that are giving you a problem. But seeing the photo of the car has me wondering:
Granted that merge disputes happen all the time, if you were driving on 95 and a truck started purposefully crashing into your car, what would you do?
I am thinking, I would get the hell away from that truck and call 911, probably pulling off to the side of the road to do so. But what if the truck driver pulled over when I pulled over?
There seem to have been eyewitnesses so we will likely get more information as the story unfolds.
