GAMBRILLS, Md. (WJZ)— It was a wild case of road rage in Anne Arundel County. Two men are bloodied and hurt–one of them on his wedding day. Now WJZ has obtained the frantic calls for help from other drivers who saw it all.
Meghan McCorkell has the latest.
One man is now under arrest, charged in this frightening case of road rage. Now we’re hearing from those who witnessed the attack.
Drivers watched in horror as road rage spiraled out of control.
Dispatcher: “OK. What’s going on?”
Caller: “There’s been a stabbing and big a car accident.”
Witnesses say the 44-year old driver of a SUV– who’d just gotten married–got into a confrontation with 23-year-old Ross Sudbrook, a passenger in a PT Cruiser.
It all started right on Route 3 and Riedel Road. The victim and his new bride were joking around and switching between the driver and passenger side at the red light.
Police say Sudbrook had words with the couple, pulled out a knife and stabbed the husband.
Caller: “At the last intersection, some guy was trying to get another guy with a knife from his car.”
When the PT Cruiser took off, the SUV followed.
Caller: “You know we were going down the road. All of a sudden the green car comes up on the shoulder of the road flying, cuts in front of all kinds of cars and rams the PT Cruiser.”
The two cars wound up in a ditch.
“Suddenly everybody was running from cars. And cars were scattered all over the shop here,” said Jim Paugels, witness.
Another fight broke out. This time, the victim eventually knocked out Sudbrook.
Now Sudbrook faces several charges, including first- and second-degree assault.
WJZ did speak with the new wife of the stabbing victim. She says her husband is doing OK. They’re still trying to get over the shock of what happened.
Police say more charges could be pending in this case.
