Police investigating road rage incident in the Lindsay area

KAWARTHA LAKES-The City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service is investigating a road rage incident that occurred on Friday June 21, 2019.

Police say at approximately 6:30pm, the occupants of a pickup truck travelling north towards Lindsay on Highway 35 south became involved in a dispute with the occupants of a black, four door Honda Civic that was following them.

According to police, the occupants of both vehicles made gestures towards each other, until the vehicles stopped at the intersection of Highway 36 and Weldon Road.  Before the vehicles could move through the intersection, an occupant from the Honda Civic allegedly exited his vehicle and assaulted a passenger in the pickup truck.  An occupant in the Honda Civic then drove towards the pickup truck, ramming the truck in the process and causing damage to the front and rear passenger side doors of the truck according to police.  As the occupants of the pickup truck telephoned “911” to request police attend, the Honda Civic and its occupants fled the scene.

The City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service is asking that anyone who may have information about this incident contact them at 705.324.5252.  Or if you wish to provide your information anonymously you can do so through Crime Stoppers at 1.800.222.TIPS (8477) or at www.khcs.ca.
