A Trump Train surrounded a Biden Harris Bus on Interstate 35 between San Antonio and Austin Friday afternoon, leading the Democrats on board, including congressional candidate Wendy Davis, to call 911. The Biden campaign ultimately decided to cancel the Austin close of their “Battle for the Soul of the Nation” tour.
According to a source familiar with the incident, the vehicles were a “Trump Train group.” These groups are known in parts of the state and organize events that involve their cars with flags and Trump paraphernalia and drive around to show support for President Donald Trump. The group began yelling profanities and obscenities and then blockaded the entire Biden entourage. —CNN

Here’s a couple of our observations:
In the last photo if you look you can clearly see that next to the truck is the shoulder of the freeway.
Which vehicle appears to be in the lane directly behind the bus first?
It’s hard to tell in the video exactly which vehicle was in the lane first. Because in the video it appears that the truck is positioned in the lane directly behind the bus and the white car begins to enter into the lane by trying to nudge the truck out of the lane.
In the video, the truck appears to push the car out of its lane.
We do not know which vehicle was actually in that lane first.
Watch the video posted on Twitter.
Today, @realDonaldTrump supporters followed the Biden bus throughout central Texas to intimidate Biden supporters. They ran into a person’s car, yelling curse words and threats. Don’t let bullies win, vote. pic.twitter.com/CIyEWwbvqU

“I saw yesterday a video of these people in Texas,” Rubio said to a large, mostly mask-less crowd. “Did you see it? All the cars on the road, we love what they did.”
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) at last night’s rally on the Texas Trump caravan that menacingly surrounded Biden bus:
“We love what they did, but here’s the thing they don’t know: We do that in Florida every day. I love seeing the boat parades … We thank all the great patriots…” pic.twitter.com/kRaLcW60jn
