WASHINGTON, D.C. — A man has minor injuries following a road rage incident today in which another driver pulled up next to him on the Beltway and his window was smashed, all while a  4-month-old sat in the backseat.

The 38-year-old man was driving on the inner loop of I-495 when a motorist beside him started driving aggressively. After a while, the aggressive motorist pulled up to the driver’s side of the victim’s car, and the victim saw his passenger window shatter.

The victim was hit in the fingers by glass and pulled over when he noticed blood. Police and rescue arrived and treated him on the scene, and checked out the 4-month-old girl who was in the backseat during the incident to make sure she was okay.

Detectives located the other driver and the suspect vehicle, a white Chevrolet Trax that was involved. The 25-year-old male driver was interviewed and no weapon was recovered. The investigation is ongoing and no charges have been placed at this time.
