Passenger jumps into driver’s seat, takes off, after confrontation with motorcyclists

CityNews | posted Friday, Sep 23rd, 2016


Ontario provincial police are investigating a wild night on Highway 401 that saw the passenger jump into the driver’s seat and take off after the original driver got into a confrontation with a group of motorcyclists.

It began around 10:50 p.m. near the Dixie Road off-ramp.

It appears the driver of a car was trying to get around a group of motorcyclists that was blocking the westbound lanes and weaving in and out of traffic.

There was some kind of interaction between the driver and the group of motorcyclists and the car was damaged. All of the vehicles exited at Dixie, and the driver got out of her car. One of the motorcyclists may have punched her in the face.

At that point, a male passenger jumped into the driver’s seat and took off, leaving the woman behind.

He eventually flipped the car on Aerowood Drive and it burst into flames. Mississauga firefighters quickly knocked down the fire.

The man and the woman had minor injuries.

The OPP are asking any witnesses to come forward.
