Road rage incident ends with car flipping, woman going to hospital

INDUSTRY, Pa. — Police say a driver rammed a woman's car Thursday morning in Beaver County until it crashed, sending her to the hospital and flipping his own car.

Police haven't released the suspect's name, but they identified him as a man in his 50s and said the woman whose car he repeatedly rammed had a PFA against him.

"It wasn’t just a one-and-done kind of deal," said Officer Ken Stahl of the Beaver Borough police. "He continued to follow her and purposely rammed her vehicle."

The crash occurred around 7:30 a.m. The investigation shut down the busy road for hours.

"The offender actually passed other vehicles on the roadway in order to get behind one female who had a PFA against him," Stahl said. "He purposely rammed that vehicle at least three times."

Police aren't exactly sure where the chase began, but the debris field stretched a three-quarters of a mile, and they say he put many other motorists in danger.

"She did try to get away from him," Stahl said. "She kept speeding up but he just kept at it."

The suspect is in the hospital after complaining about injuries from the crash, but police say he will be charged with several crimes.
