Three People Charged Following Road Rage Incident On Cape Cod


SANDWICH, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Three people are facing charges and one is injured following a road rage incident that turned physical over the weekend on Cape Cod.

Sandwich Police and Massachusetts State Police responded just before 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon, to a report of a first fight near the westbound on-ramp to the Mid-Cape Highway.

When officers arrived on scene, they located three vehicles that were involved in the incident. Sandwich Police said a 32-year-old woman from Connecticut reported that she was being "tailgated" by the driver of a GMC Canyon, a 30-year-old man from East Falmouth.

The man claimed the woman had been "brake checking" him. The issue escalated and both drivers stopped near the on ramp, got out of their cars and began yelling at each other.

Then the woman's 27-year-old brother, also from Connecticut, got out of his car and allegedly attacked the East Falmouth man.

Police said the brother struck the other man in the face and left him with what police said are "significant injuries."

All three were summoned into court on negligent operation of a motor vehicle and assault and battery charges.
