Alleged Road Rage Leads to Arrest of Suspect in New York State
Everyone has encountered rude drivers at some point. Of course, there is a difference between aggressive driving and flat-out road rage.
AAA estimates nearly 8 out of 10 drivers demonstrate aggressive driving behaviors when behind the wheel at some point. We all can be guilty of it. And while "road rage" is a bit of a broad term, Bankrate defines it as taking aggressive driving "one step further into more violent and potentially dangerous territory."
While some details are still not available, this story definitely involves road rage.

One major interstate in New York was left quite a mess after a tractor-trailer crash in late September. Officials say the accident happened when the driver of the truck lost control of the vehicle, resulting in her suffering non-life-threatening injuries.
But it's what the truck was carrying that caught some peoples' attention.
I HATE MANURE!!!!
The New York State Police said in a press release the 25-year-old driver of the tractor trailer lost control of the rig, went off the road, and then overturned several times. The crash happened on Interstate 90, between the Depew and Pembroke exits that afternoon. Officials say the tanker was hauling liquid manure, which then leaked out all over the road.
The NY Environmental Conservation Police were on the scene to help with the clean-up effort. Luckily, the spill was considered non-hazardous.
