HENDERSON, Nev. -- A road rage incident was caught on camera and now that video has gone viral. Truck drivers and motorcyclists got into an altercation, and it culminated with a gun being pulled.

The incident took place Saturday on Boulder Highway in Henderson, Nev. A group of bikers was headed to the desert when a rider angered men in a blue truck after kicking up dust.

Apparently, the incident angered the occupants of a red truck as well.

"Honestly, I didn't think that I'd get a gun put in my face for going up to the guy's window," said one of the riders, who wished to remain anonymous.

That rider remained calm and attempted to reason with the men in the truck.

"I didn't even realize the guy had his finger on the trigger until I went back and reviewed the video myself. My heart was just racing, my stomach turned and I was feeling sick. It was definitely scary," the rider said.

The rider said he turned his unedited video over to the Henderson Police Department.

"I didn't really think it was gonna escalate to what it did, and that's literally the first time I've gone up to somebody's window in traffic like that and it will be the last," the rider said.

YouTube video of the incident had more than 330,000 views as of Monday evening.
