Road rage incident leaves 5 injured after violent brawl in Quincy

QUINCY, MASS. (WHDH) - Five people were injured in an extreme case of road rage in Quincy Sunday.

A fender bender led to a brawl in the middle of the intersection of Farrington Street and Elmwood Avenue.

At least five people were injured in the incident, and they were taken to a local hospital.

“I can understand, I get annoyed at how people drive but you don’t have to be punching people over stuff like that,” Keith Anderson, who was watching TV during the time of the incident, said.

Anderson heard screaming outside.

“I went outside and I think there was eight of them total in the street throwing punches at each other, one guy had a bloody nose,” Anderson said.

There were four people in each car, and they all began to fight.

Anderson said one of the people involved was a pregnant woman.

He said he yelled at them to knock it off, but as it escalated he quickly called 911.

“I’ve been here 14 years and it’s the first time anything like that has happened,” Anderson said.

Anderson said he is used to people speeding and running through the stop signs in his neighborhood, a problem he believes may have played a role in this road rage incident.

“It’s not that big of a deal, there was a pregnant lady involved and it shouldn’t have went that far,” Anderson said.
