First responders at the scene of Division Street and Lewis Avenue where a car repeatedly rammed into a FedEx truck. 

A man was arrested on Wednesday afternoon after repeatedly ramming his car into a FedEx truck, sending the delivery driver to the hospital, according to the Billings Police Department. 

Zachary Knowshisgun, 27, is being held at the Yellowstone County Detention Facility and was arrested for assault with a weapon and obstruction of justice. 

On Wednesday just before 4 p.m. Knowshisgun rammed his car into a FedEx truck at the corner of Lewis Avenue and Division Street, BPD Sgt. Clyde Reid said.

He continued to crash his car into the FedEx truck at least three times until his own car was disabled, Reid said. He then he got out of the car and ran from police. Once arrested he was uncooperative, Reid said. 

Police believe he deliberately rammed into the FedEx truck; there was no sign that it was an accidental crash, Reid said. Police aren't sure why Knowshisgun targeted the FedEx truck, he said.

"He did not appear to be under the influence of alcohol, or had obvious signs of intoxication (from any substance)," Reid said. 

Knowshisgun already had a warrant for arrest out for assault with a weapon from the U.S. Marshals, Reid said. 

The delivery person was taken to a local hospital with injuries that weren't life threatening. Reid didn't know the extent of the driver's injuries, but said they appeared to be minor.
