 State Police are asking for the public's help in identifying and locating a man who allegedly beat a second man during a "road rage" incident, Monday night, on I-93 in Andover.
The victim, a 36-year-old man from Billerica, was located by Tewksbury Police at the intersection of Shawsheen Street and East Street, and transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
According to State Police, the incident began when the victim and a second driver pulled off the highway and engaged in a fistfight in the breakdown lane. The fight erupted after the drivers had agitated each other while traveling on the highway, around 5:20 p.m., the height of rush hour traffic.
The fight was reported to State Police but by the time Troopers arrived at the scene, both drivers had left. An APB was sent out to area police departments and the victim was found by TPD patrol officers a short time later.
State Police are searching for the second driver, described as a white male, who was wearing a blue shirt, khaki cargo shorts, construction boots and was driving a black Mazda CX-5.
Witnesses to the fight or anyone with knowledge of the identity or whereabouts of the second driver is asked to contact the state police barracks in Andover at 978-475-3800.
State police remind motorists to slow down and steer clear if someone is driving aggressively and to call 911 if the aggressor persists. Most importantly, police said, never get out of your vehicle to confront an aggressive driver.
