I recall that Queen Jocasta's most trusted servant claims that Laius was killed by robbers when in fact he knew that Oedipus killed him in a fit of road rage or "path rage" when they met travelling.

queen jocaster never told king oedipus that she and her husband king laius had a son called oedipus until the truth was known.
