Police in Marcy Looking for Road Rager Who Allegedly Punched Another Driver in the Face
Police are looking for witnesses to a rush hour incident that happened on Friday morning in Oneida county.
The New York State Police says troopers were called to State Route 49 in Marcy at approximately 7:45am on April 22, 2022 for a reported road rage incident.
In a written release police say a man reported that he was driving a tan-colored Chrysler Pacifica in the passing lane of the road when he says that he saw, in his rearview mirror, "a blue Volkswagen SUV approaching him at a high rate of speed. The white male driver pulled into the driving lane passed him and when he got directly in front of him slammed on his brakes."
The man said that he was able to stop before hitting the other car. While both cars were stopped in the passing lane, the man alleges that the driver of the blue Volkswagen got out of his car, ran over to him, and punched him in the face. According to the victim, the suspect then walked back to his car and left the scene.
