Road-rage incident leads to crash, pepper-spray
SAN DIEGO, CA – A road-rage incident ended in a crash and one woman pepper-spraying another earlier in the week, according to 10 News.
Authorities are still investigating the circumstances that led to two women racing down Interstate 8 at about 100 MPH between Mission Valley and Ocean Beach. When the silver car and white SUV exited at Sunset Cliffs Boulevard, the driver of the silver car began ramming the other vehicle. She then forced the white SUV to crash into the center median.
The two drivers exited their vehicles for a confrontation, which is when the driver of the SUV used pepper-spray to subdue the other woman’s aggressive behavior.
Police arrived on the scene to conflicting stories from the women. One claimed that both were dating the same man. The driver of the SUV claimed she had never met the other driver.
No one has been arrested, but the investigation continues.
