A TRUCKER lost his cool with a car driver in a road rage incident at a busy Bournemouth roundabout.

Police are appealing for information into the incident, which unfolded on Wimborne Road, near the Redhill Roundabout.

After the victim, a man in his 50s who was driving a white Vauxhall Astra, approached the traffic lights by the roundabout, he moved into a gap in front of a lorry in the nearside lane.

The lorry sounded its horn and the victim made a gesture out of the window in response.

But when the victim came to a stop in traffic, the driver of the lorry got out and pulled open the car driver's door.

He shouted at the victim and as the car driver pulled his door shut, the lorry driver kicked the door twice before getting back into his vehicle and driving off.

Police Constable Andrea Watson, of Dorset Police, said: “We have been continuing to make enquiries into this incident and, after further contact with the victim, I am now appealing for any witnesses or anyone who may have captured the incident on dashcam to please come forward.

“I would also urge the lorry driver involved to do the right thing and contact us so we can take his account of the incident.”

Police have only just released details of the road rage attack, but it took place around 1.55pm on Friday, October 30.

The paintwork of the victim's car was damaged in the incident.
