Dashcam footage captured earlier this month on Highway 1 just outside of Regina shows some tense moments as a truck appears to try to force a minivan off the highway. 

Rheanna Dale was heading east on Highway 1, driving in the passing lane when a newer model Ford F150 truck, which Dale said was driving erratically, pulled up right behind her.

Dale said that she had just passed a snow plow, and saw the Ford truck swerving between the driving and passing lane on the highway.

"I decided to stay in that lane, because I thought if I had pulled back into the driving lane that he might swerve at the same time and take me out that way," Dale said.

Dashcam footage shows the truck sharply pull into the driving lane and then ram into Dale's minivan.

She said thankfully, her children were not in the van — but it did sustain some $3,000 of damage in the incident.

"I'm not even too concerned about my deductible, I just don't want him to hurt anyone else," Dale told CBC News. "That could have been a lot more worse than what it was."

She was so focused on keeping her vehicle on the road, she wasn't able to identify the Ford truck's licence plate or the person who was driving it.

Dale said she reached out to police to report what had happened to her and was told by RCMP that there had been at least four other calls related to the truck and the way it was being driven. RCMP tell CBC they are aware of the incident and it is being looked into.

Dale has since posted the video to social media in an effort to find the person driving the truck.

Dale said so far, she hasn't heard back from the RCMP in terms of their investigation into the matter.
