Apparent road rage accident snarls morning commute

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Police say Mission Gorge Road in San Carlos turned into a race track Thursday morning when a pickup truck and car weaved back and forth and in and out of traffic.

Now authorities are investigating this as a possible case of road rage.

Police say a 29-year-old man driving a Ford Ranger was injured, after hitting a BMW in the 7800 block of Mission Gorge Road. The crash happened in the middle of rush hour with heavy traffic in the area around 7:40 a.m. Thursday. The woman driving the BMW was stunned, but not injured.

Officers say the car and pickup were racing in westbound lanes and jockeying for position, making it extremely dangerous for others.

"We have one vehicle behind another. A 1997 Ford Ranger went around a 2013 BMW. There was not enough room and the rear end of the Ranger clipped the BMW and flipped twice and then ended right side up," said

Lt. Kevin Mayer with the San Diego Police Department.

Detectives are talking to witnesses to confirm if this was a case of road rage.

The man is being treated in the hospital for a head wound.

Police have not filed any charges yet.
