According to a report from CBS Edmonton, Jimmo and an unidentified man were involved in a roadside altercation that reportedly led to Jimmo walking up to the man’s car to exchange words. After attempting to walk back to his car, the unidentified male sped up and struck Jimmo with his vehicle and left him behind.
