Highway horror: ‘I thought he’s going to kill me’

A GRANDMOTHER feared she was going to be killed by a truck driver who repeatedly rear-ended her after she pulled in front of him in traffic.

The Courier Mail reported that Merran - who did not want her surname published - was travelling from Brisbane's western suburbs along the Warrego Highway to collect her grandchildren from Middle Park when the incident occurred at Bundamba.

The 68-year-old said she was caught in heavy traffic on the highway just before 2pm on Tuesday and said she saw several cars swapping lanes, and saw a gap to merge in between two trucks.

But then Merran said the truck banged against her vehicle repeatedly, shunting her forward a little each time.

"It was just a horrible feeling of being attacked by a truck. And we were all going slowly. He would drop back then come up and rear end me again," she said.
