According to a Murfreesboro Police report, a 6-month old baby was injured in a road rage incident. Evidently, another motorist who was named in the report, is accused of throwing a cologne bottle at another vehicle. The bottle is believed to have shattered the rear window of the truck and the child was hit in the face with glass.
No arrest was made, but the parents of the child told police that the road rage incident occurred after they passed the accused because he was said to be traveling too slow. The suspect then tailgated the parents, according to the report that was filed late last week. The child had what were described as minor injuries after the incident and was taken to the local hospital.
Officers contacted the accused and he denied the Road Rage allegations. The incident occurred on Old Fort Parkway at I-24 in Murfreesboro. Authorities made contact with the victim when he pulled over on the New Salem Highway. The case was labeled as a “Reckless Endangerment, Vandalism and Road Rage” incident.
