Woman, 22, says men intentionally rammed her car several times on Route 376


BEAVER COUNTY, Pa. - Police said they're looking for leads in what appears to be a case of road rage in Beaver County.

The victim said the incident happened along State Route 376 in Vanport on March 22. Mallory Hiltz said she was driving on the road when two men in a red pickup truck rammed her car several times.

"I'm mad that's for sure because it scared me," Hiltz said. "I didn't move over fast enough I guess and they hit my back bumper three or four times. It scared me a lot."

Hiltz said she was headed to work and was getting onto the Parkway West. At the time, construction was being done on the Vanport Bridge near Beaver and only one lane was open.

"They were laughing when they hit me so I don't think that was an accident at all," said Hiltz.

Hiltz said she tried to catch the truck to get the license plate number, but the driver took off speeding down the highway.

"I was completely shocked that someone would do that. I've gotten mad driving plenty of times but I never would have thought someone would ram into my car on purpose," Hiltz said.

If caught, police said the driver could face charges of reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and assault.
