Employees of a private EMS service recently reported a road rage incident in West Jackson.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office was called for the report of terroristic threats and acts, simple assault, improper stopping on roadway and aggressive driving on Hwy. 124.

The two employees said a blue Acura tried to run them off the road, pulled beside them and threw something out of the vehicle, striking the ambulance.

One of the complainants said the driver was traveling erratically, going in and out of his lane and the lane they were driving in. They followed closely to get the license plate number, before pulling back to drive away.

At that point, the driver stopped his vehicle in the roadway and walked "aggressively" towards the ambulance. He cursed at the complainants, hit the window and tried to open the door.

A truck driver stopped to check on them and the suspect walked away.
