SEE IT: Tailgating goon flips off driver — then crashes

A grinning, tailgating bozo flipped off another driver on Florida highway and, seconds later, crashed into a light pole — and it was all captured on video.

Jeffrey Travis White, 33, of Tampa, was arrested Wednesday for leaving the scene of an accident on U.S. 41 near Gibsonton, the Florida Highway Patrol told the Tampa Bay Times.

Tracy Lynn Sloan, of Lakeland, said the buzz cut goon tailgated her for several minutes on Monday morning, so she took out her phone and recorded him. 

As he zoomed past, he flashed a wicked grin and gave her the finger. 

Seconds later, White spun off the rain-slicked freeway onto a median and smashed into a light pole.

Jefferey Travis White, of Tampa, was caught tailgating a woman in his truck and then crashing on U.S. 41 in Florida. 



“That’s what you get, all on video, buddy,” Sloan cackles in the clip, as White’s battered 2008 Ford pickup lurches backwards across the grass.

Police said White fled the scene, but was arrested Wednesday after Sloan turned the video over to police.

He was facing charges of leaving the scene of a traffic crash, careless driving and failing to wear a seat belt, the Times reported.

Records showed his rap sheet included busts for battery and pot possession.

Sloan wrote on YouTube that she would have moved out of White’s way to let him pass, but there were trucks in the lane next to her.

“I’ve recorded circumstances like this before, catching idiots doing stupid things, but never ever had this happen,” she said.

“Needless to say though, I’ve never seen Karma come back so fast.”
