No Weapon Recovered in Beltway Road Rage Incident
A 38-year-old driver has minor injuries as a result of a road rage incident. The victim called police at 1:45 p.m. this afternoon and said he was driving on the inner loop of I495, in the area of National Harbor when another motorist started driving aggressively next to him. Just prior to Braddock Road, the other motorist pulled to the driver side of the victim’s car and suddenly the passenger window shattered. The victim then noticed blood on one of his fingers. He pulled off on the Braddock Road exit and waited for police and rescue. A 4-month-old girl was in the car and uninjured. The victim was treated on the scene and the child was checked out by paramedics.
Detectives located the other driver and the suspect vehicle, a white Chevrolet Trax that was involved. The 25-year-old male driver was interviewed and no weapon was recovered. The investigation is ongoing and no charges have been placed at this time.
