My partner and I are very lucky to be alive this afternoon….
At approx 3:10pm this afternoon, we experienced horrific road rage directed at us on the Monaro Hwy. It happened in the direction going from Civic to Hume about 1km or so of the Alexander Maconochie Centre. An “electric blue” coloured ute (pretty sure it was a like a 2009-ish Ford with hardtop rear cover + spoiler) had been tailgating us aggressively. My partner was driving and she commented on how close it was, I glanced and was shocked as it appeared to be really close to us. We were in the overtaking lane and was intending to pass one final car and allow him (yes, young male) to pass. He immediately accelerates and drives between us and the car we were passing. Side by side to us, he swerves into our car and nudges us off the road at 100kph. My girlfriend realises she is heading straight towards a tree and manages to brilliantly steer past it just missing and a subsequent tree. We came to a stop after some time and were both obviously shaken up and sickened by what had happened. The rage was so high he didn’t even car he was damaging his own car in the process.
It was all so fast an unfortunately no chance of no. plate recognition. But he left blue paint on the our passenger front wheel so he must white on his panel. We both are feeling shaken up and quite sick in the stomach. Made a police report and another lady stopped which was nice, got her details for insurance as a witness.
This is stab in the dark, but if anyone witnessed this event and may have any further information please post back.
