Driver’s Arm Broken by Brick After Turnpike Road Rage, Cops Say
SOUTH BRUNSWICK — A driver's arm was broken in a road rage attack on Valentine's Day.
A 44-year-old man ended up with a bleeding and broken arm after an SUV driver who followed him from the New Jersey Turnpike threw a landscaping brick through the man's passenger window while they were stopped on Old Trenton Road, Police Deputy Chief James Ryan said.
The man and the other driver, who was in a blue or black SUV, had taken Exit 8A about 3 p.m. Friday, then traveled south on Route 130 before stopping on Route 535.
