ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Police told News 4 it will be difficult for them to track down the suspect in a road rage incident that occurred on I-70 Thursday.
Nikki was driving westbound on I-70 Thursday as part of her typical morning commute when the incident occurred.
“Every day I head down that way and I’ve never experienced anything like that in my life,” said Nikki.
Nikki spoke to News 4 on the condition her last name would not be shared.
“I made a left merge into the fast lane and then all of sudden a truck came flying up on my bumper, lights bright, trying to ride my butt
Marie said it then took a disturbing turn
“He pulled up next to me really quickly and rolled down the window and that's when he pulled out a gun, a black handgun directly out the window,” she explained.
For several minutes she said the driver kept the gun pointed at her as they drove from St. Charles Rock Road to I-270.
“I could read his lips saying I’m going to kill you, I’m going to kill you,” Nikki said,
She said called 911 and was able to give able to give a good description of the truck as the driver exited at Earth City.
“It was a newer Toyota truck, a Tundra, double cab, dark gray,” she said.
She said she even got a good look at the driver.
“I looked him straight in the eye, I saw what he was wearing, a bright orange t-shirt and a baseball hat lined with camouflage. He had a five o’clock shadow and was in his mid-40s.”
However, police said she only caught part of the license plate. They said that will make it very difficult to track down the driver.
