Warrant Issued In Greenville Road Rage Case

Greenville police say they have obtained a warrant for the driver of a vehicle in Tuesday's case of road rage where two people were injured. Police are not identifying that driver as of now.

The road rage started when the victims say the driver of a gray Nissan vehicle started throwing things out of her window on Memorial Drive. It ended up in the parking lot of Tropical Smoothie on Arlington Boulevard, shortly before 2:00 p.m.

Joseph Thomas and Gina Whichard tell us they called 911 and then followed the car into the parking lot to check on damage to their vehicle. That's when they got out of their car, and Gina's leg was run over by the vehicle as it left the parking lot. Thomas was struck by the vehicle's side mirror.

Whichard says, "I have brusies on my right and left side. She torn the skin off my right heel and ankle. The doctor says it's going to take a long time to heal."

Police are investigating the case as an assault with a deadly weapon with serious injury, with the vehicle as the weapon.

Police say they have obtained a warrant for assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, but that person has not yet been charged.
