Man clings to speeding car for three miles in road rage row | US News
A man clung to the bonnet of a speeding car for three miles after an alleged road rage row in the US.
Richard Kamrowski, 65, was filmed hanging on to the front of a white SUV as it drove at speeds of up to 70mph on a major highway near Boston on Friday.
Mr Kamrowski got into an argument with Mark Fitzgerald, 37, after the pair had a minor collision on Interstate 90, police said.
Mr Fitzgerald tried to drive away at some point during their dispute, but Mr Kamrowski jumped onto the bonnet of his vehicle and held on while Fitzgerald drove for “a very significant distance”, police said.
In video shot by another driver, the white 2016 Infiniti, which had a cracked windshield, is seen speeding up and slowing down while surrounded by other traffic on the busy highway.
Mr Fitzgerald can be seen using the windscreen wipers and is heard shouting “get off my car” as Mr Kamrowski held on and used his phone to call for help.
Miraculously, no one was injured.
The driver was eventually stopped by other motorists, one of whom pointed a gun at the SUV to convince him to stop the car, NBC Boston reported.
“I thought he was going to run over me. I don’t think he stopped, he kept going fast, slow, fast, slow, to get me to slide off,” Mr Kamrowski said.
Mr Fitzgerald was filmed telling police that Mr Kamrowski “hit his windscreen with a bottle of water”.
Police arrested and charged both men.
Mr Fitzgerald was accused of assault with a dangerous weapon, negligent operation and leaving the scene of a crash causing property damage while Mr Kamrowski faces disorderly conduct charges.
“I was assaulted. That’s it. I just kept telling him, ‘Stop the car, stop the car’, and he wouldn’t stop,” Kamrowski told NBC Boston.
