Authorities in Fort Lauderdale are searching for a driver who reportedly threw a microwave at another driver’s car during a road rage incident.
The incident was reported near the 800 block of South Federal Highway on Sunday.
The victim told police that it all began when she made a slow left turn. The driver of the vehicle behind her then became angry:
“There was a car in back of us, a black Mercedes-Benz, honking, honking very aggressively,” she said.
The victim says the driver began following her as she pulled into a Shell gas station. Once the victim stopped her vehicle, the other driver got out of his vehicle and threw an energy drink can at her car before marching towards her open window.
“I rolled up my window as fast as I could, and before I knew it, he hocked and spit at my window,” she said.
The driver then reportedly walked away.
Once the woman believed the driver was gone, she attempted to push her gas tank button but instead pushed her trunk button. That’s when the suspect walked back to the victim’s vehicle and took something out of her trunk.
The victim noticed the suspect at her vehicle and attempted to drive off. As she was driving away she heard a loud bang and noticed her rear windshield window was shattered.
When the woman got out of her vehicle, she noticed that the suspect had taken a microwave out of her trunk and threw it at her car before he drove off.
The women attempted to follow the suspect to get a license plate number but eventually lost him.
