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

The altercation saw the Amazon driver veer into 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 as it took place on Oxcroft Way in Barlborough, Derbyshire on Wednesday, November 18.

Motorist Richard Madin captured the incident as he was driving behind the two trucks and witnessed what happened.

In the video, which Richard narrates, he sets the scene by explaining the road layout.

He says: ‘The junction we are about to go off on is toward Barlborough. 

‘Now the left hand lane is to only go left, the right hand lane should go straight across or right.’

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

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

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

The Amazon driver then starts to ‘chase’ the driver in the smaller LGV down another road.

A shocked Richard can be heard, saying: ‘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 into oncoming traffic and according to Richard, almost clipping the smaller lorry from the rear.

The chase continues as the Amazon driver again appears to attempt to collide into the LGV as the pair come onto another roundabout.

This causes the driver of the LGV to mount the curb 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.’

Social media users have been shocked by the video since it was shared by Richard on Facebook.

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

Amazon and police have been contacted for comment.
