Police Searching for Driver Involved in Road Rage Crash in Hall County, GA


January 15, 2019

HALL COUNTY, GA. – Police in Hall County, Georgia, are searching for a driver involved in a road rage crash on January 6, according to an online news report from wsbtv.com. The incident occurred on Interstate 985 in Hall County and might have involved several gunshots.* 

The incident took place on the evening of January 6. At about 9 p.m., an unidentified husband and wife were traveling north on Interstate 985 in Flowery Branch, Hall County, Georgia, and exited onto Mundy Mill Road. They say a white pickup truck that had been following them very closely attempted to pass them on the exit ramp. 

The pickup driver then rear-ended their car. The husband indicated the driver of the pickup also fired two gunshots. The couple wishes to remain anonymous, so their names have not been released. The impact of the rear-end crash dented and scraped their vehicle’s bumper. 

The husband said everything appeared to start back on the express lanes of the interstate. A car in front of them slowed down and backed up traffic, and the pickup truck started driving right on the couple’s bumper. The husband said the pickup driver then tried to sideswipe them and followed them off of the interstate.

In a 911 call, the wife said the driver was road raging and purposefully hit the back of their car, then started firing a gun. 

“He just drilled the back of our car,” the husband said. “It was like he didn’t even try to hit the brakes. He hit us full force. We heard two gunshots, and after that, I flew off and left him in the dust.”

Police are still searching for the missing driver and did not provide additional information about this driver or the white pickup truck.
