A 65-year-old man talks about a shocking episode of street rage that was captured in the video. Richard Kamrowski clung to the hood of a car as he drove about three miles along the Massachusetts highway on Friday, reports CBS Boston Station WBZ.
Kamrowski said he had gone into survival mode while clinging to another driver's SUV. Kamrowski and another man had a small accident on the Mass Turnpike in Weston. The two quarreled and the other driver, identified as 37-year-old Mark Fitzgerald, tried to leave the scene. Apparently Kamrowski jumped on the hood of Fitzgerald SUV.
Fitzgerald drove "Kamrowski" on the bonnet "very far". "I thought he was going to attack me," Kamrowski told the WBZ. Several witnesses took Kamrovski's video on the hood as the SUV passed.
Kamrowski called 911 while he was on the SUV. "I always told him to" stop the car, stop the car "and he would not stop," the 65-year-old said. "He walked fast, slowly, quickly, slowly trying to make me slip."
The state police told the Boston Globe that the SUV with the man on the hood reached speeds of up to 70 mph.
Two passengers helped to end the dangerous situation by punching in the SUV and forcing Fitzgerald to do so. A video shows a driver with a gun facing Fitzgerald, forcing him out of his SUV at gunpoint and says he has a take-out license. The man with the gun and another driver held Fitzgerald there until the soldiers arrived.
The video shows Fitzgerald telling the police what happened. Both men are now in rage because of their role in the street dispute. Fitzgerald was charged with assaulting a dangerous weapon. Kamrowski is charged with disorderly conduct.
Kamrwoski told WBZ the incident began when Fitzgerald drove into his lane and hit his car.
The man with the gun that held Fitzgerald for the police was forced to the ground, but he came to the ground face no charges. No injuries were reported.
