Truck driver uses blame game in ‘unreal’ road rage story

AN ICE-ADDLED truck driver who went on a three-day rampage, running drivers off the road and threatening them with weapons, tried to say he was the "terrorised" victim.

The Daily Telegraph reported County Court judge Susan Pullen questioned Elten Gevergizyan's remorse after hearing how he had tried to play the victim during his police interview.

"Really, his explanation is just unreal," Judge Pullen said. "All he did in the entirety of it was blame everyone else."

Gevergizyan, 28, pleaded guilty to 14 charges in the County Court on Thursday, including three counts of reckless conduct endangering persons, relating to three separate road rage attacks over three consecutive days in May last year.

The court heard he told police on his arrest that one of his victims was "just a lunatic" who had a "devilish smile like a witch" and enjoyed the confrontation with him.
