A neighbor believes this started and ended because of road rage.
“The two cars were shooting at each other. There was a white Lexus that was stuck in the middle of it. He got hit by the blue car,” a witness said.
That witness didn’t want to be identified. She is a neighbor who saw a blue car crash into a white Lexus and then the blue car crashed into a fence. A neighbor’s surveillance camera captured two people running away after that crash.
“I guess they were scared that the person or someone was coming after them,” the witness said.READ MORE: COVID-19 Testing Sites In South Florida
The people in the Lexus walked away without a scratch but they were still too shaken up to be interviewed.
“They’re lucky. I mean, look at them, they’re standing up right now. They’re lucky they got out of it alive,” she said.
As for the third car involved, the neighbor said it kept going. Police have not said whether it later stopped.
Investigators have not released how many people were involved, how many witnesses and if this is confirmed road rage.MORE NEWS: COVID-19 Vaccination Sites In South Florida
