CONVIS TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- Michigan State Police are looking for the driver of a semi-truck who allegedly forced the driver of another semi-truck off the road earlier this week in Calhoun County.

The crash happened at about 11:30 a.m. Dec. 1 on northbound I-69 at N Drive North near the 42 mile marker in Convis Township, according to police.

Police say the suspect made "aggressive gestures" at the other driver and then pulled forward and swerved into the side of their truck, forcing it off the road and causing it to roll over.

The driver who was forced off the road sustained minor injuries and has since been released from the hospital.  The crash was captured on his truck's dash cam video.

According to police, the suspect is a black male who is believed to be driving a white, newer model semi-truck, possibly a Freightliner.

The suspect's truck likely sustained damage to the passenger side and might have red paint from the other truck on it, according to police.

More description of the suspect's truck provided by Michigan State Police in a release:

The tractor has a tinted window on the passenger side of the sleeper berth. There is also black lettering on the passenger side door of the truck and below the window of the sleeper. The trailer had small markings near the nose on the curb side and what appears to be a crack in the van box near the landing gear.

Anyone with information on this crash is asked to call Michigan State Police at the Marshall post at 269-558-0500.
