WATCH: Fredericton road rage video goes viral, prompts apology from man involved
WATCH ABOVE: A road rage incident in Fredericton was caught on camera and uploaded to Facebook by Iain MacDonald, who was forced to listen to an irate man’s rant.
Cellphone footage of a road rage incident that occurred in the Fredericton area on Sunday has gone viral, prompting an apology from the man shown in the video.
Iain MacDonald shared the video, taken by his son, on Facebook and said the incident occurred on Priestman Street during a drive into the city with his children.
The video has been viewed almost 600,000 times and has been shared by more than 11,000 people.
In it, another driver pulls his car around MacDonald’s and stops on the road in front of him before getting out and unleashing a verbal tirade because he feels MacDonald cut him off.
“Look man, I don’t want any trouble, alright?” MacDonald can be heard saying as the man, identified in a CBC report as Erik Bohnsack, approaches.
“If you can’t see to drive, don’t drive,” Bohnsack says. “You got it?”
Bohnsack continues by accusing MacDonald of driving dangerously with kids in the car.
“Maybe check your [expletive] mirrors. Maybe use your eyes,” he says.
MacDonald, in an apparent attempt to defuse the situation, says he’s sorry. Before Bohnsack walks back to his car, honking can be heard as traffic moves around him.
According to CBC, Bohnsack apologized for his reaction, which he called “out of line,” and said it would “never happen again.”
Global News reached out to MacDonald for comment but did not hear back.
