Summary McConnell recounts a hellish incident of road rage which occurred on Aug. 4, 2000 on Interstate 83 between Baltimore and East Petersburg, PA. Michael Eck, a forklift operator, was driving from his home in Baltimore to his job in East Petersburg when his Chevy Impala was struck from behind 12 times by a semi-truck driven by James Trimble.
