Road rage victims' stories differ
LAWRENCEVILLE - A Lawrenceville woman alleges a road rage incident on Tuesday ended with her being hit on the head.
According to a police report, the woman was traveling behind a Honda Civic for a few miles when the driver began to motion to her as if she was following too closely.
At a traffic light the male driver began yelling at the woman and exited his car, threatening to hit her with a baseball bat.
The woman said she got out of her car to get the vehicle's tag number but was hit in the head by another person in the Honda.
The driver told police the woman walked over to his car and slammed the door in his face and injured his finger.
Because the stories conflicted, no charges were made.
