Road rage suspect takes baseball bat to other driver’s windshield
“Video shared on social media shows a man jumping out of his car and smashing out the windshield of another driver’s car on I-635 LBJ Freeway.
It happened Monday morning after the suspect allegedly hit the rear bumper of the victim’s car and tried to flee the scene.
The victim told police he tried to stop the man from fleeing by colliding into his vehicle. This only seemed to infuriate the man, who then jumped out of his car with a baseball bat. He smashed the victim’s windshield with the bat then fled.”

Damage to your vehicle and windshield due to negligence or an accident is at least understandable. When that damage is done by another person due to road rage, it should be unforgivable. All too often some folks lose their cool on the road. That appeared to be the case when a simple lane merge went wrong. Luckily, the other occupant wasn’t harmed. Now it’s just a matter of tracking down the offending individual to recoup the losses from damage.
