Road Rage Incident Turns Into Shooting
Maybe I'm overly sensitive because of my own brush with road rage last week, but a story from Florida has me shaking my head. According to ABC Action News in Tampa, a couple was sitting at a red light when a man got out of his car, walked up to the passenger side window, and shot the man sitting there. The shooter then got back into his car and drove away. The woman who was in the driver's seat told the station that she "may have cut off the suspect while driving."
Let that sink in; she wasn't even sure of what she had done to set this guy off, yet he found it to be so egregious as to warrant a shooting. This is one of the best reasons to avoid engaging in road rage behavior: you never know which nut has a gun. In case you were wondering, the victim was hit three times and was taken to the hospital with "non-life threatening injuries."
