Road Rage Incident Between Driver And Teen Pedestrian Goes Viral (Video)


An intense road rage incident caught on a helmet camera has gone viral (video below).

In the video, the motorcyclist with the helmet cam spots a man on the corner of a street in Sterling, Virginia, yelling at a teen using profane, threatening language.

The cameraman pulls off to the side of the road and begins to intervene, telling the driver to lay off the teen.

The driver explains that the teen crossed the intersection before his light was red, causing him to almost hit the young man.

“I’m calling the cops!” the driver says to the cameraman.

“Go ahead, call the cops,” the cameraman responds. “I’ve got it all on video.”

The cameraman, Michael Crawford, said he felt compelled to intervene when he saw the man threatening the teen.

“I have four kids,” he told WUSA9. “You don't yell at other people's kids. You don't do it -- period. You just don't do it. There's no excuse for it -- period."

Eventually, police arrived and it was found that no crime had been committed, Crawford said.

Sterling resident Espe Labate watched the video online after it went viral.

“I couldn't believe it,” she said. "I had seen several postings about it, about what an outrage it was, and I thought: How bad could it be, right? So I watched it and I could not believe how bad it was. The guy was out of control."

Watch the intense confrontation below.

Warning: The video contains strong language.
