Driver injured in road rage incident on I-495

- Police are investigating a road rage incident that began in Maryland and went into Northern Virginia.

Fairfax County police said the incident initially started near National Harbor in Prince George’s County as a 38-year-old driver told them another motorist was weaving around and driving aggressively next to him on the inner loop of Interstate 495. This continued into Virginia when the victim said the passenger side window of his car suddenly shattered just before the Braddock Road exit. The victim then exited the highway onto Braddock Road and he pulled into a gas station in Springfield where he called and waited for police to respond.

The driver suffered a cut to his finger and was treated by medical personnel at the scene. His 5-month-old daughter was in the backseat of the car, but was not injured.

Police are investigating what caused the victim's car window to shatter. The victim told FOX 5 that he was able to record cellphone video of the suspect's car as it sped away.

Detectives would later locate the other driver and his vehicle, a white Chevrolet Trax, at a restaurant in Vienna. They interviewed the 25-year-old man, but did not recover a weapon from him. No charges has been filed at this time.
