A road rage incident in Muskogee, Okla., caught on camera over the weekend has sparked a multi-agency search for a pick-up truck driver who rammed a teen couple, according to a KJRH report.

In the video, a red Dodge pick-up truck is seen tailgating the couple on U.S. Highway 62, in Muskogee. A few moments later, the truck makes contact, ramming them and causing the car driver, 18-year-old Noah Wilson, to lose control and skid across three lanes of traffic before hitting a guardrail.

Luckily, the car missed another vehicle in the lane next to them.

“Like those people said in the video, ‘we’re about to see a [expletive] murder,’ it’s scary to hear that and think it could’ve been,” said 17-year-old Gracie Bottger, the passenger in Wilson’s car, according to the KJRH report.

“He just hit us and then didn’t quit pushing us until we got into the grass,” said Wilson, according to KJRH. “I probably would’ve sped up and got around the guy a lot quicker if I would’ve known something this bad, and someone could be that much of a jerk to do this”

Local authorities believe the driver is in his late 20s or early 30s and say surveillance footage shows the truck pull into a nearby convenient mart to check the damage on his truck not long after the collision.

Bottger said: “The person in front of you has a family. The person in front of you has a life, I mean, you’re not the only person in the world that matters.”

Officials are asking anyone with information to call Muskogee police.
