Fryelands crashed blamed on road rage
9:03 pm October 30th, 2012
A crash on Fryelands Boulevard Thursday, just after noon, is being called a road rage incident.
According to police, two cars traveling south on Fryelands Boulevard from U.S. 2 were driving fast and passing each other.
When the two cars reached the school zone, one of the vehicles swerved in front of the other, clipping the vehicle and causing it to flip onto its side in the median, knocking down a small tree.
A woman, 47, who was driving the flipped vehicle had to be removed through the windshield, but was not harmed.
The man in the other vehicle, also 47, waited for police. Neither driver is from Monroe.
Both will be cited.
It is the second incident in a year on Fryelands Boulevard to be blamed on road rage.
In June, an altercation between two drivers culminated in one driver getting out of his truck and assaulting a passenger in the other vehicle, an SUV as police, who had come at the report of erratic driving, looked on.
Then the truck sped away, dragging the driver of the SUV, who had stepped out of her vehicle to try to stop him. The SUV driver had minor injuries and the driver of the truck was arrested.
