Exerpt from 9News: “The driver of a truck seen in a video swerving into a motorcyclist (Quentin Quidley) on Interstate 25 last month faces numerous charges, including attempted first-degree murder, the Colorado State Patrol (CSP) announced Thursday.
Alberto Mota, 38, faces other charges that include vehicular assault and child abuse because his 12-year-old daughter was in the truck with him at the time of the incident.”
Thanks to a good Samaritan with a dash cam who caught the whole incident on video and with the help of 9news, CSP was able to investigate this matter with live action video, as Mr. Mota claimed to troopers he had simply made an unsafe lane change, which resulted in the crash.
This type of road rage is all too often not prosecuted because there is no live video of the crash. However, that is beginning to change as more riders are wearing or have dash cams on their bikes and drivers are now putting them in their vehicles.
