A road rage incident in Brisbane yesterday afternoon has left one man dead and another charged with murder after the victim fell in front of an oncoming truck.
Police spent the night reviewing dash-camera footage captured by the garbage truck after a 50-year-old fell in front of it and was killed instantly at about 3.15pm, reportsThe Courier Mail.
The victim was allegedly involved in a physical fight with the other man after they pulled over on the Gateway Motorway-M1 merge at Eight Mile Plains.
Police charged a 36-year-old from Yarrabilba with murder late last night, alleging he assaulted the 50-year-old and caused him to fall onto the road.
“Police will allege around 3:15pm the man assaulted another man causing him to fall onto the road way and into the path of a truck travelling on the motorway,” a police spokesman said.
The man is due to appear in court tomorrow.
