Road Rage Case Goes Viral

April 30, 2013, 6:00 PM by Don Jorgensen

Road Rage Case Goes Viral
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

It's a case of road rage that's gone viral. 

An avid cyclist says he was riding back into town Monday afternoon around 5 p.m. on Louise Avenue when a man driving a truck pulled up from behind him and began honking his horn. But that's what he said it got ugly and now the incident is all over facebook.

57th and Louise is a busy intersection, especially around 5 p.m. But on Monday Joe Stiller says it got dangerous.

"I was afraid if I fell down he was going to go over the top of me," Stiller said.

Stiller claims a driver was intentionally running into the back of his bike while stopped at this intersection.

"Every time he would nudge me, I would almost fall down," Stiller said.

Stiller then grabbed his cell phone and snapped a picture of the driver in his truck and put it on Facebook and now it's gone viral.

After his picture appeared on Facebook, the driver of the truck called us to tell us he didn't do anything close to what Stiller is claiming.

He wouldn't go on camera, but says yes, he was mad and honked his horn and the two got into a verbal argument, but never ran into the back of Stiller's bike. Now he's going to get himself an attorney. 

Multimedia experts say this is a prime example of the day and age we live in.

"Just about everyone we encounter today can instantly capture information about you and publish it themselves." Mark Glissendorf of Lawrence and Schiller said.

Glissendorf says we have to be careful.

"You have to as a viewer at that point really be thinking about the context around it, is this something I think I can take as fact?" Glissendorf says.

Who's right and who's wrong; a case of road rage that started here and wound up on the information super highway.

Glissendorf also warns people to remember, social media web sites don't have editors like traditional news outlets.
