Road Rage and Car Theft in Houston

Karma Strikes

Reported by abc13, two women got into a fight on the freeway after one woman rear-ended another woman then jumped out of her car and began hitting the other woman with her fists, witnesses say. The incident occurred on Little York near the Eastex Freeway.

If that isn’t bad enough, while the one woman was hitting the other woman, a video taken by a witness shows a man run by and jump in the vacant car and drive off. So the woman who rear-ended the other woman and then proceeded to get out and punch the woman she hit, got her car stolen by an unknown man.
