When driving, we can get frustrated and upset with other drivers around us, especially if traffic is not moving or someone cuts us off on the road. That frustration, for some, can escalate to road rage. There is a clear difference in road rage and aggressive driving, with the former being defined as when a motorist “commits moving traffic offenses so as to endanger other persons or property; an assault with a motor vehicle or other dangerous weapon by the operator or passenger of one motor vehicle on the operator or passengers of another motor vehicle” according to the NHTSA. Road rage incidents can lead to serious charges, specifically when another is killed. WFTV reports on a Florida woman charged for her part in a deadly road rage incident.
The incident occurred late Wednesday, December 27th. Witnesses reported that Chriskesha Price, 21, and Darrius Grooms, 26, got into a verbal confrontation. Both parties were in vehicles at the time of the incident. Shortly after, Grooms slammed into a tree and was killed.
Two witnesses say that Price was at fault and was chasing Grooms at the time of the accident. One of those witnesses said that Price almost hit her as she sped away from the scene.
Last month, Price had been arrested on charges of cocaine and drug paraphernalia possession. Last July, Price was also arrested for grand theft, burglary, and kidnapping charges. She was declared not fit to stand trial.
