As a San Clemente personal injury attorney, not only have we seen road rage cases, but we have also witnessed them. If you are suffering from injuries due to a road rage incident that was brought on by the negligent act of another, you have rights.
Last week we did a post about road rage and how to get those bouts of road rage under control. Apparently Dashanie Colvin and Yaya Shabazz did not read our article. The aforementioned were both involved in what people are calling a “demolition derby-style” road rage fight in South LA the other day. The video of the two women fighting has been viewed and shared on social media thousands, if not millions of times.
The two women have conflicting stories of what happened in the incident. Shabazz says that Colvin rear-ended her, then pulled over. And the other woman got out of the car and spit in her face. Colvin is stating that she did not rear-end Shabazz’s car. Stating that Colvin would try to cut her off in every lane. It was Shabazz who spit on Colvin and not the other way around. Either way, the situation escalated a lot quicker than necessary.
In the video you can see the women arguing and getting into a physical altercation. The two women both state that the altercation was unnecessary.
The holidays have everyone on edge a little bit more than usual. Let’s try to drive carefully. Remember to respect each other on the roads, use turn signals, don’t follow too closely, etc.
