Road Rage

I had been following this car at a distance for about 20 minutes down a one lane road. The road opened into 2 lanes at 45 mph. and we were currently going 40. I moved into the right lane as I usually do if I am not passing anyone and slowly sped up to about 45-47 and he stayed in the left going 40. I didn't even think about him as I passed him and continued on my way. The two lanes then merged back into one. I glanced to my left and he was probably about 10-15 car lengths back. Plenty of room to merge. There was a car I was kind of next to so instead of speeding up, I slowed down ever so slightly and started to move over. Out of nowhere, this guy flies up, getting about 1 foot from the back of the car I was merging behind and swerves into me trying to run me off the road. It scared the living daylights out of me. I can not, for the life of me, figure out what he was upset about or if he was just wanting to be a jerk. If I hadn't seen him last minute, he would have hit me and run me headfirst into the barrier that was just starting on the side of the road after the merge. I had to swerve into the shoulder to avoid him hitting me and slam on my brakes to avoid the barrier. I am just so thankful my baby daughter wasn't with me at the time. I have never used this site and just found it because this wasn't just usual reckless driving or road rage. He literally tried to kill me by running me headfirst into a barrier. I have sent his info to the cops as well but I doubt anything will happen so I wanted a way to put it out here, too.
