The former reporter-turned killer who considered himself a “human powder keg” was in fact one behind the wheel as well.

A recently emerged YouTube video shows Vester Lee Flanagan II, who also went by the name Bryce Williams, arguing with another driver during a road rage incident in July.

Less than two months later, Flanagan, who was fired as a TV reporter in 2013 for his disruptive behavior, would fatally shoot two people who worked at his former news station. He’d then kill himself.

“He was obviously not in the right mind,” Brandon Foster, who filmed the July 6 incident in Roanoke, Va., told CNN. “He was driving in excess of 100 mph.”

Vester Lee Flanagan II, a former WDBJ reporter, was fired from the station in 2013 for disruptive behavior. A new video suggests that he was involved in a road rage incident in July.

In the video, Flanagan, 41, is seen beside a silver Mustang with a license plate that matches the then would-be killer’s, according to police.

Vester Lee Flanagan, who’s also known as Bryce Williams, is seen in a road rage video that was allegedly shot last July in Roanoke, Va.

Foster said he confronted the driver about his erratic driving after they pulled up next to one another at a traffic light not far from Flanagan’s former news station.

“I told him, ‘you’re driving like a lunatic,'” Foster recalled in the video’s description.

“He rolled his window down further and said ‘what’d you say?’ I said, ‘you’re driving like an a–hole in the rain. You’re endangering people’s lives on the road, you a–hole.'”

When the light turned green Foster said the driver aggressively followed him while locking him in traffic.

“I managed to get off the road to my destination when I start the video,” he said.

The video shows Foster getting out of his vehicle and being confronted by Flanagan, who appears to hold his own cellphone up as if filming.

“You call a guy out for driving like a prick and you think he’s going to lose his mind,” Foster is heard mumbling while walking away.
