OKLAHOMA CITY --A man says a truck side-swiped him and then took off.

But the victim's quick thinking may help catch the suspect.

Troopers responded to the incident, but said there was not much they could do.

But thanks to a phone and some video, this victim is hoping you will recognize the truck that got away.

"I got on I-35 southbound at exit 141, and when you do that you have your own lane, it doesn't merge, it doesn't," Andrew Williams, the victim driver says.

Andrew Williams was on his way to work at Tinker Air Force Base when his new car was hit.

"This truck next to me was wanting to be where I was at, he side swiped me, he kept on going and I was a little surprised," Williams said.

As you can imagine, Williams was infuriated.

"Hitting me was an accident, but him just driving off is lawlessness," Williams says.

Immediately, he pulled out his phone and began recording.

"I actually followed him for about a mile, honking my horn," Williams said.

At the same time, Williams say his OnStar was activated... he wanted to follow the runaway driver, but his hands were tied.

"In order for them to call the highway patrol, I had to pullover so that's what I did," Williams says.

And while he waited for law enforcement, the truck got away.

"This guy is clearly dangerous, this person is clearly not safe to be out in the community," Williams said.

If you recognize the truck, call OHP.

Williams was able to get a trailer tag, but troopers said that was not traceable. He would have needed to get a license tag number that's typically in the front of the truck.
