Car rammed in road rage attack on Scenic Hill | Police briefs

A 50-year-old Gladesville man was the victim of a road rage incident on Monday afternoon during which his car was rammed and phone broken.

The incident occurred on Bells Line of Road near the Ex-POW memorial on Scenic Hill at around 3.30pm.

The man, driving a Ford Ranger, overtook a Toyota Landcruiser towing a horse trailer and pulled back into the left lane.

The Toyota, being driven by a 50-year-old Orange man, then rammed the Ford and sped up to overtake.

After completing the manoeuvre the Orange man slowed down suddenly causing the Gladesville man to almost drive into the back of his car.

The Gladesville man tried to get out of his vehicle however he was prevented from doing so by the Orange man.

All the while the Orange man’s family were yelling at him to get back in his car.

The Gladesville man attempted to take photos of the Toyota with his phone but he told police it was hit from his hand by the Orange man with a ratchet.

The phone fell onto the ground, breaking the screen. The Orange man then drove away from the scene.

The Gladesville man first attended Lithgow police station to report the incident but has chosen to report at his local police station at a later stage.
