Road Rage Incident Involving Ford F-250 and Ranger Results in Fatal Accident
The driver of the Ford F-250 is still at large and Chicago Police are looking for information.
Road rage comes in a wide variety of forms and degrees and none of them are acceptable. Unfortunately, some are worse than others and in this case, road rage ended in a fatality. In the video below, you will see two Ford pickups making contact around the 5500 block of South Kedzie around 2:15 am. The incident on the Chicago street showed clear signs of intentional harm or damage. Initially the larger pickup, possibly a Ford F-250, was up against the white line at the light, but the driver then threw the truck into reverse and positioned it behind the 1998 red Ford Ranger. After several seconds, the F-250 quickly accelerated, ramming the truck. Unfortunately, the video ends at that point in time.
According to reports, the F-250 pushed the Ranger two blocks, eventually forcing it into a tree. As you can see in the link, the Ranger sustained heavy driver's side damage with intrusion. Police report the victim, 21 year-old Eduardo A. Pena, was transported to Stroger Hospital where he later died.
