Shocking moment Amazon lorry ‘chases’ smaller truck and forces it to swerve off the road after they almost collide at roundabout

  • An Amazon lorry driver was filmed driving aggressively after a near-collision
  • The HGV ‘chases’ a smaller lorry and appears to attempt to push it off the road
  • The altercation was caught on dashcam in Barlborough, Derbyshire on Nov 18

This is the shocking moment an Amazon driver pursues a smaller truck they thought cut in front of them.

The altercation saw the Amazon driver veer towards oncoming traffic to ‘chase’ the truck and forces it to swerve off the road after they almost collide at a roundabout.

The incident was caught on dashcam on Oxcroft Way in Barlborough, Derbyshire, on November 18.

Motorist Richard Madin was driving behind the two trucks and narrates over his footage. 

As Richard’s car approaches the end of a dual carriageway and a roundabout, an Amazon HGV can be seen in the left-hand lane. 

Richard says: ‘The Amazon truck on the left, should be going left. However, he goes straight across, nearly hitting that van.’

In the video the HGV can be seen almost colliding with a smaller truck on the roundabout, right in front of Richard.

The Amazon lorry driver then appears to ‘chase’ the smaller truck down another road.

A shocked Richard says: ‘He thinks he is in the right and proceeds to chase him down Barlborough links road trying to ram him off the road.’

The Amazon driver then swerves out towards oncoming traffic and according to Richard, almost clips the smaller lorry from the rear.

The Amazon driver again appears to try to collide with the truck as the pair come onto another roundabout.

This causes the smaller vehicle to mount the kerb to avoid hitting the trailer.

The smaller lorry then exits the roundabout and the Amazon HGV continues on its way.

As the footage plays out, Richard says: ‘Look at that! He needs reporting and doing something about it. He shouldn’t be driving that wagon.’ 

He posted the clip and branded the Amazon driver ‘disgraceful’. 

An Amazon spokesperson said: ‘We work with a variety of haulier partners to get packages around our logistics network and are committed to ensuring that their drivers drive safely at all times. 

‘The driver will no longer be carrying parcels on behalf of Amazon.’
