As Pennsylvania car accident lawyers, we know that car accidents, even the most minor fender benders, can be stressful. For some people, car accidents can lead to dangerous road rage.
For example, in Philadelphia last weekend, two men were involved in a minor accident on Devereaux Street that likely would not have resulted in significant injuries except for the fact that one driver took out a gun and shot the driver after the accident happened. The driver who was shot died from the gunshot wounds.
Road rage is a difficult thing to predict. If you are involved in an accident, it is usually best to stay in your car and wait for the police to arrive before talking to the other driver. If you feel that you are in physical danger from the other driver, make sure to tell the 911 operator who can instruct you on how to stay safe.
