St Austell police search for "aggressive" van driver

Comments (1)

A van driver saw red at a set of traffic lights in St Austell and began continuously beeping his horn and flashing his lights at the driver in front, police have said.

A male driver, believed to have been in a large light coloured van, was seen driving erratically from Slades Road onto Clifden Road on Thursday January 2.

Officers said when the suspect approached traffic lights at the Victoria Road junction, he got out of his vehicle and spoke to the driver in front in an “aggressive manner.”

A representative from Devon and Cornwall Police added: “When the van driver got back into his vehicle he sounded his horn continuously and flashed his headlights repeatedly until the lights changed to green.

“The van then turned left towards the Penrice roundabout. “

Police are appealing for witnesses or any information to assist in identifying the vehicle or the driver of the van.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC 4424 Buckland at St Aust

    Why do the media call it road rage as if it's some form of disease? It is not it is rank bad manners in some cases even resulting in assault. This idiot should learn how to behave.
