Road rage leads to street fight in Excelsior

A man angered by the apparent slow pace of a car in front of him started a fight with its driver, which caused the man to go into a seizure Sunday, according to police.

The 18-year-old victim was driving at 3:40 p.m. near Persia Avenue at Naples Street when the suspect, a man in his mid 20s, began arguing with him because he was driving slowly.

The pair exited their vehicles and started what police called “mutual combat.” When the victim fell to the ground, the suspect began kicking his face. Eventually the victim lost consciousness and had a seizure.

He was transported to a nearby hospital and is expected to survive.

No arrest had been made in the case as of Monday.
