Well, here we got one of Merkel’s lorry drivers !
The tabloid BILD reports: 

After a bloody dispute with a cyclist, parcel carrier Florent R. has to answer in court for attempted murder. The 21-year-old is accused of having hit the cyclist from behind with his car in Weil der Stadt (Böblingen district) in mid-May. Afterwards he got out of the car and stabbed the injured person several times with a knife. At the start of the trial on Thursday before the regional court in Stuttgart, only the indictment was read out. The accused Kosovar did not make a statement. The accused is said to have got angry at a red traffic light because of the cyclist’s criticism of his driving style. In the subsequent attack, he had endangered his victim’s life. Witnesses claim to have heard the parcel carrier shouting phrases like “I’ll stab you to death” or “I’ll kill you.” According to the prosecution, he did not let go of the injured person until a witness intervened and loudly demanded that he put the knife away.Thereafter, the 21-year-old is said to have added, among other things, “He may die, I do not care” and “You shall perish now”. A judgement is not expected before mid-December.
