Va. State Police Search For Road Rage Vehicle

* Get Alerts | Weekend Tips | Live Map | Weather *

Following up on that road rage mention earlier -- Virginia State Police are on the lookout for a vehicle involved in a road rage incident that began on I-95 and carried over to a nearby rest area. The incident took place at around 1:50 p.m. in Prince William County today in the southbound lanes near the 157 mile marker. The suspected vehicle -- described as a black BMW with a temporary rear tag and no front license plate -- pulled into the rest area near the Prince William County Parkway along with another vehicle.

The two men from the BMW walked over to the other vehicle and a verbal escalation ensued, according to the state police. And they say that according to someone in the second vehicle, one of the two men in the BMW opened their shirt to reveal a handgun (which was never removed nor pointed at anyone). The BMW folks then apparently returned to their car and left. Anyone with information about the BMW or the incident is encouraged to call the Virginia State Police at (703) 323-4503 or toll-free in Virginia at 1-800-803-0010.

Virginia State Police would also like to remind you, with the roads crowded this weekend, not to engage other motorists. If you see a vehicle driving recklessly or aggressively, dial #77 on a cell phone to reach the nearest Virginia State Police Emergency Communications Center.
