Bad case of road rage nearly turns deadly

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A seemingly normal drive turned violent for a woman in South Memphis on Tuesday, June 18.

Police say she was headed south on Third Street and was almost hit by a man merging into her lane near the Mitchell intersection. Investigators say he got so angry that he pulled alongside her and fired several shots into her car before driving off.

Police still haven't caught the gunman. That's why they posted the below picture of his car and the victim's car on social media. They hope it'll generate leads.

 

Complete strangers are horrified by the story.

"I think she was thinking probably her life was about to end," Randy McGee said.

This road rage incident is one of at least four WREG has covered in Memphis this month, including one involving a man named David Jayne. He says an angry driver pulled a gun on him at the intersection of Summer and White Station Road.

"I couldn't tell what she was saying, but she was totally cussing me the whole time, you know, as she was pointing her gun," he said.

She was arrested after Jayne flagged down an officer sitting next to them waiting to turn. The woman told police she was mad because Jayne cut her off.

"You do something over that petty and now it's really gonna cost her a lot," Jayne said.

It'll cost the driver in this latest case a lot too if he gets caught.

"You got criminal charges and all that," McGee said. "All because you was hot headed for ten seconds."
