Driver damages other car in road rage incident in East Grinstead


Police are seeking witnesses to a road rage incident in East Grinstead yesterday (Wednesday March 2) where a man damaged another driver’s car.

A spokesperson for Sussex Police said the driver of a Volkswagen Golf exited his car and caused damage to a Toyota Celica.

The incident occurred on a busy one-way system at about 5.30pm.

The Golf left the Esso garage in Station Road and forced its way in front of the blue Toyota, causing the driver to brake hard, police said.

The Golf driver is then alleged to have stopped and approached the other car and slammed on the bonnet, kicked the door and bent the nearside windscreen wiper, before he opened and slammed the victim’s door shut, police added.

The suspect is described as a white man, aged about 30, with black hair and of stocky build.

Anyone with any information can contact or call 101, quoting serial 985 of 02/03.
