Police pulled over the vehicle and the two men inside, a father and son, said they were involved in a fight after a road rage incident.
The caller also said the fight was over a road rage incident. He stated he accidentally threw a cigarette into the back seat of his own vehicle and when he stopped at a red light he got out to remove it. When the light turned green the two men in the GMC started yelling and when the caller pulled into the Hess station a fight broke out. Police stated they could not determine an aggressor at the time but would check surveillance tapes for possible felony charges.
The caller was transported to Winchester Hospital for injuries to his face and knees.
