Michigan State Police Seek Public's Help in Road Rage Incident Near RockfordSource: Facebook/Michigan State Police

An aggressive display of road rage on U.S. 131 near Rockford ended with a Subaru being rear-ended and shoved down the highway by an SUV, according to Michigan State Police. The incident, which occurred earlier this morning, is being investigated after the SUV driver pushed the sedan close to a semi-truck and fled the scene.

Sources say the confrontation began south of 10 Mile Road. A gold Chevy Tahoe or GMC Yukon was reported to have aggressively collided with the rear of a Subaru during the morning traffic rush hour. After striking the car, the SUV proceeded to force the vehicle forward along the busy southbound lanes, as MLive reported. Without stopping to check on the occupants of the car it had bulldozed, the SUV made its escape.

The driver responsible for this dangerous maneuver has been described as a white male with a beard, according to a FOX 17 report. Thus far, authorities have turned to the public for assistance in locating the road rage suspect.

The Michigan State Police have asked anyone with information or anyone who witnessed the incident to come forward. Offering a helping hand in their search for the evasive driver, a plea has been issued by MSP Grand Rapids Post, looking to hear from potential eyewitnesses on their hotline. They can be reached at 616-866-4411, as a request by WGRD detailed.
