Miami Gardens, Fla. (Sun Sentinel) -- Road Rage victim shot after car crash
A fender-bender may have led to the fatal road rage shooting of a driver in Miami Gardens Monday afternoon.
Two vehicles were heading south about noon on Northwest 47th Avenue, approaching 156th Street, which curves east at Opa-locka Airport.
The first vehicle, a black Toyota, struck the guardrail, and a vehicle following behind, a silver Honda, then rear-ended the Toyota, police said.
Miami Gardens Police Sgt. Bill Bamford said the drivers exited their vehicles and "words were exchanged" followed by gunshots. One driver, 29, died on the road with two gunshot wounds.
The driver of the Honda took off, but was caught by police about a quarter of a mile from the crash. He has not been charged.
"We are not sure he did the shooting," Bamford said. "We are still questioning witnesses."
Miami-Dade police officials, who are assisting Miami Gardens police, said the man was shot while standing in the roadway.
The article states that they are uncertain as to who exactly did the shooting. Up to the time the article was printed there were no arrests made as Miami-Dade police officials were still investigating.
The outcome of this road rage accident proved to be fatal for one of the parties involved. Investigations are still be conducted and no arrests or charges have been made.
