An Overbook Park accident took place that left one driver fighting for his life and another being sought by police. The incident took place when one driver went into a fit of road rage after a crash on City Avenue in Philadelphia.
Police believe the incident started in the area of West Chester Pike around 10 p.m. last night. Investigators claim that the driver of a Jeep Liberty made a u-turn in the 200 block of West Chester Pike. An SUV almost made contact with a Buick. The driver of the Buick became enraged and tried to confront the Jeep driver.
The SUV driver became enraged. The driver of the Buick got out of his vehicle to confront the driver of the Jeep but traffic lights kept changing, so the incident continued onward.
The SUV attempted to flee the Buick and, when doing so, he clipped a white vehicle and lost control. This sent him into a tree. Many neighbors in the area got out of their homes and rushed to help the driver. One passenger was able to get out but the driver was only half conscious at this time. Medics were called to the scene.
Those in the neighborhood believe that the other driver knew he was fleeing an accident scene. The driver is now wanted for aggravated assault.
The driver of the Jeep suffered severe head trauma.
