      What the hell story are you commenting on?

  • Pete S.

    I don’t know why they classify it as road rage, once the guy gets caught they will call it temporary insanity and he’ll be off the hook.

    Guy attempted murder, should be called that and charged for that not road rage.

    I hate when people drive slow in the left lane, left lane is for passing unless your in rush hour traffic, keep the left lanes clear.

      How could they get a description if car windows were dark tinted? Hmmm… and he looks white from the pic. Nevertheless no justification for ignorance. Hope they catch this dude.
