Route 9, NY (October 13, 2018) – Police say that a woman wielding a knife was arrested following a road rage incident that led to injuries in two people. The incident led to a chase and accident on Thursday, October 11.
Police received the initial call regarding the incident around 11:30 a.m. that morning when a woman reported that an aggressive driver was harassing her family on Route 9.
The 22-year-old who called in was with her parents on the highway when a Ford Focus started driving erratically and brake checking their vehicle. The 51-year-old woman in the vehicle started waving around her 8-inch tactical knife and yelling at the family. When they would try to drive past, she would block them in.
Later, the same driver collided with a Rav 4 when she had been ignoring the red traffic light at an intersection with Georgia Tavern Road. The driver then tried to flee the scene on foot but police were able to catch her and take her into custody.
