Local woman becomes victim of violent Houston road rage

Posted:
TEMPLE - You may have been irritated with traffic one time or another, but on a Houston highway, a Temple woman experienced a whole new level of road rage that nearly killed her. She took a large drill bit to the face.

"I ended up with this gorgeous face and a broken nose and stitches for skin that was torn off my nose and my eye," she said.

This woman was sitting in the passenger seat while she and her friend sat in Houston traffic last Saturday night.They were heading south bound on 290 East when a blocked off roadway resulted in three packed lanes.

"We were getting frustrated. I am sure everybody there was getting very frustrated because we had to sit there for so long."

Suddenly, a man in a pickup truck tried to wedge his car between their car and the car in front of them. With no room to move, the pickup truck driver began to curse and use hand gestures.

"So, (my) driver yells back at him, ‘Get out of our lane, get out of our way, get away from our car please!' And the next thing we know he's backed off."But this man wasn't done."The pickup truck… I could see it out of the corner of my eye, pulling up right besides us and before I had a chance to say anything or really look over there, the next thing I know is that I have been hit right between the eyes."

The man had thrown a large drill bit at her.It bounced off of her face and broke the windshield.The truck sped away.

She wants this man found and to get help because she believes next time could be worse.

"I want him in some sort of anger management course or whatever so that he doesn't do this to anyone ever again, because the next time he could kill somebody," she said.

Houston police are still in search for the man in the pickup. Police believe the man was driving a dark blue or black Chevrolet.
