Police this morning are looking for the driver of a dark pickup truck who they suspect stalked and eventually shot dead a 28-year-old man in a random road rage incident. Yet another story that makes you paranoid to tick off anyone while you are out there on the road, especially since it's not long after that horrible motorcycle gang SUV attack in New York City late last year. Police think this incident in Pennsylvania started over one of the drivers braking too quickly or cutting the other off.
The victim, 28-year-old Timothy "Asti" Davison, was driving from Florida back home to Poland, Maine. His first 9-1-1 call to report a crazed, aggressive driver in a black or blue Ford Ranger style pickup happened in Antrim County, Pennsylvania, after the driver starting firing on Davison.
He drove about 15 miles before the mystery truck rammed him off the road and into the median -- you can see Davison's Mitsubishi stuck in the median in the image above just moments before he was shot.
Police say the vehicle they are looking for will have damage on the driver's side, probably silver paint. Davison was brought to a local hospital, where he died several hours later.
It's hard to make sense of such a useless tragedy, especially when you learn what a gentle person Davison was. His mother told a local paper:
Overall, the best way to describe him is a caring and very generous person whom everyone loved. He had a very positive attitude about living life in the present. He was a hard worker who would give the shirt off his back for anyone in need.
Until they find the driver we won't know which driver triggered the chain of events, or if the two men were connected in some other way -- it appears they did not know each other at all. So far no witnesses have come forward. Maybe you remember seeing something? This lunatic is still on the road and someone has to get him off of it.
