Bird leads to ramming

The male driver said he was on Interstate 35 at Oak Street and the pickup was tailgating him. When the truck eventually passed him he made an obscene gesture at the driver as he went by. The other driver became irate, he said, began yelling at him and intentionally rammed his car. He followed the pickup and called police.
