    A little Road Rage going on there or was this guy just a very poor driver. I’ve heard of incident where vehicle have run into the back of a semi trailer and the driver was not aware of the hit… but never where a tractor has hit the rear of another vehicle sending it off the road and not knowing it. I’ve also heard of accidents where drivers have left the road because they didn’t have control of their vehicle when a semi passed and created a suction or push. THAT has happened to me and certainly was not the fault of the truck driver. A suction nearly pulled me under a trailer while driving on ice as the truck passed me. And I was driving a Suburban. Not the easiest of vehicles to be pushed around by the force of a truck passing.
