ROAD RAGE: Angry Lehigh Driver Pushes Womans Car Into I-78 Median

Pennsylvania State Police are seeking the public's help identifying a Lehigh County driver who they say was yelling at drivers and even hit one woman's car, sending it into a concrete median on I-78 over the weekend.

The woman was putting gas into a silver Toyota Prius when the man, operating a silver Toyota pickup truck, was driving around and yelling at customers in the Wawa parking lot on Schantz Road in Upper Macungie Township, around 2:45 p.m. Sunday, according to Trooper Nathan T. Branosky.

Once the woman left Wawa, the man -- described as a skinny white male with facial hair-- followed her in his car onto I-78 westbound, where he rear-ended her car near Exit 45, Branosky said.

The woman attempted to drive away by leaving the interstate at Exit 40, but the man followed in the Toyota pickup truck and again struck the woman's car into the concrete median before stopping and yelling at her, Branosky said.

He then fled back onto I-78 Westbound, Branosky said.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact Trooper Shawn McCormick at (610) 395-1438 and reference Incident Number Pa21-305132.
