Man Smashes New Car With Bat in Hudson Valley Road Rage Incident
A Hudson Valley road rage incident turned violent as a man was captured smashing another driver's car with a baseball bat.
CBS 2 in New York shared cellphone video of Daniel Bosquez taking a bat to a blue Subaru. The alleged road rage incident happened last Wednesday on the New York State Thruway. It's unclear what the Subaru driver did to enrage Bosquez, but it's obvious the 37-year-old Long Island man was not happy.
Bosquez is seen hitting the car several times, smashing out the driver side window. The Subaru driver, who filmed the whole incident, is heard questioning why his car was being attacked.
After Bosquez heads back to his car he's seen turning around again, raising his bat to the alleged victim. Realizing he's still on camera, the Long Island man finally gets back in his car and speeds away, but not before the Subaru driver gets a shot of his license plate.
Police eventually caught up with Bosquez 20 minutes later after he continued to travel north on the Thruway from Spring Valley, where the incident took place.
Once apprehended in the Hudson Valley, Bosquez was charged with criminal mischief, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon. As of last Wednesday he was being held on $10,000 bail.
Officials warn that victims of road rage incidents like the one shown above should not get out of their car or confront the attacker. It's best to stay in the vehicle and drive away if possible.
