Road rage escalates to fight
Two drivers weren’t exactly in the Christmas spirit when a road rage incident escalated into a physical altercation at Eighth Avenue and Cumberland Street on Sunday. New Westminster police were called to the intersection at 2 p.m. after the motorists got into a fight.
Staff Sgt. Paul Hyland said the incident started when the occupants of one of the vehicles thought the driver of the other was taking too long to make a turn and began honking his horn. The drivers exchanged gestures as they continued driving until they reached the next intersection where they each got out of their vehicles and got into a fight.
By the time police arrived, cooler heads had prevailed, said Hyland.
“All parties were sent on their way with verbal warnings about their behaviour,” said Hyland.
No charges were laid.
