Apparent SR 12 road rage incident sends one to the hospital Tuesday morning

State Patrol: Driver rammed back and front of vehicle near the Monte-Brady Road exit

An apparent case of road rage sent a Gig Harbor man to Grays Harbor Community Hospital Tuesday morning.

Both vehicles were westbound on State Route 12 at the Monte Brady Road. Just after 7:30 a.m. a 2003 Dodge Dakota driven by a 50-year-old Gig Harbor man was in front of a 2015 Subaru Crosstrek driven by a 59-year-old Seattle man. The Seattle man rammed the back of the Dodge. When the Gig Harbor man pulled to the shoulder to call 911, the Seattle man reportedly pulled in front of him, put the car in reverse and rammed the front of the Dodge.

The driver of the Dodge Dakota was transported by aid to Grays Harbor Community Hospital with undisclosed injuries. The driver of the Subaru was not injured, nor was his passenger.

The Seattle man faces charges of second degree assault and more. Witnesses to the incident are encouraged to contact Trooper Mariakis at (360) 473-0300.
