Road rage can bring out the worst in all of us, but for sane people, rage doesn’t turn to physical violence.
25-year-old motorist Vanessa Ortiz seems to think a fender bender is reason enough to swing on another driver. Ortiz got into an accident with a 67-year-old woman and decided to duke it out with her in the parking lot of a thrift store in San Diego.
Video captured of the incident shows Ortiz swinging several punches at the much older woman before grabbing her by her ponytail and throwing her to the ground. This caused the older woman to hit the ground face first.
“I pushed her. And it was an accident, And my apologies to her and her family, whatever.” Ortiz told Fox 5. “She’s not your average old lady; she’s like a spicy old lady. As you can see I have scratches on my face; she snatched my glasses off.”
Ortiz was arrested for felony assault and is currently being held without bail.
