We've all heard of 'trucker mouth' but this is something else...


When it comes to driving, there's dangerous, and then there's this.

On Aug. 17 on Highway 16 near Vanderhoof, frustration between two truckers turned violent.

Truck A (with the dash cam) is driving on Highway 16. At first, you just see the open road. 

Roughly 35 seconds into the footage, a pickup truck passes truck A.

You'll then see truck B enter the frame at 1:24 and pass truck A. B suddenly slams on the brakes with A ending up only a few feet away from his load.

Now, here is where the strong language begins (once again: WARNING THE VIDEO CONTAINS STRONG PROFANITY)

1:50: Truck A: "Holy f***, what a goof". Truck B slams on his breaks once again.

2:25: Operator: "What the f*** is with that log truck?"

The driver of A says "I don't know. He passed me on a double solid, so I flashed him high beams, and he smoked his breaks coming to a stop." 

The operator responds "It's f****** ignorant. I see he did that. I don't see what his problem is; he's going like a 120."

The driver of A says "No exactly, f****** piece of s*** loggers."

His operator responds "I drive haul logs too usually, but I don't do s*** like that."

The driver replies "I used to drive logs and I got out of it because of people like this."

3:08: Another voice comes on the radio channel. It's the driver of truck B. 

"You're a f****** goof," he says. 

Driver A:  "I'm a goof?," he says. "Look at the way you're driving you f****** ******."

3:16 to 3:22: The audio from truck B is muffled.

Driver A: "You passed me on a f****** double solid," he says. 

Driver B: "I don't give a ****. You're doing 90!" the rest of the reply is muffled until 3:36

3:37: Truck A: "I'm doing 95 you f****** ******."

3:40: Truck B threatens to knock the driver of truck A's head off. 

Driver B: "I'm gonna stop ya. I'm coming back there and knocking your f****** head off." 

Truck A: "Oh no..."

Truck B: "Yeah...."

Operator: "I don't know why you gotta go 120 when you're hauling logs because that's ridiculous." 

Truck B: "I'm not doing 120, I was doing 100."

3:57: Truck B suddenly slams on his breaks and starts swerving from one side of the road to the other. 

Truck A: "Bull**** you were," he says. "You were going ahead of me, and I was doing 110, and you were taking off!."

Truck B: "Like f***."

Truck A: "You were in such a hurry to pass everyone on a double solid, and now you're not going to drive?" 

Truck B: "I'm gonna f******* knock your head off you f****** goof."

Truck A: "Oh no..."

4:22: Truck B once again slams on his breaks, but this time comes to a complete stop, and his lights turn off in the middle of the road. 

You see the driver of truck B exit his truck and walk alongside it down to truck A. 

4:44: Driver of truck B begins to kick the front of truck A. He kicks close to 10 times before going back to his truck. 

Other traffic continues to go around the two. 

The operator tells the driver of truck A to call the police. The driver of truck A was already doing so. 

Vanderhoof RCMP confirmed to PrinceGeorgeMatters they did receive a 911 call involving two trucks. Currently, they cannot release any more details as they are still looking for one of the drivers. 

Once the other driver is found, police say more details can be released at that time.

If you have any information regarding the incident, contact Vanderhoof RCMP at 250-567-2222.
