I would, but I think it's a little bit late for these guys.

Well, except for that last dude with one eye, and in the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king...

By my count, there were at least 75 points scored during that flurry of activity.

After reading that it sounds like it could use a yakety sax soundtrack.

No, it leaves everyone with one eye.

FTFA: Ramirez was driving a white 2015 Mercedes-Benz sedan ... A physical altercation ensued before Ramirez got into Johnson's pickup and took off eastbound in the westbound travel lanes. The front of the pickup struck Johnson, who later was declared dead at the scene.

Still not as rude as BMW drivers.

Ramirez was driving a white 2015 Mercedes-Benz sedan that rear-ended Johnson's black 2004 GMC Sierra pickup

This reads like a "Hitler and Osama bin Laden walk into a bar."

Dropped in to say "I think the story stands well enough without my input".

I read that in Cal Worthington's voice, almost expecting the next up -- his car lot.

I'm not sure Johnson in that story is guilty of much. Ramirez rear-ended the pickup Johnson was driving, at which point they'd surely pull over to exchange insurance info, etc... we don't know who started the physical altercation... given that Ramirez jumps in and steals the truck and proceeds to run Johnson over, it's possible he didn't start the fight at all.

I knew a guy who would say this with a straight face. He was naturally a massive asshole.

Rather than "road rage", this sounds more like Ramirez was a criminal running from something, hit a guy, stole his truck and killed him, hit more people and tried to jack others, then fled on foot into traffic. Or possibly him being drug-addled or a psycho would account for the mayhem.

I mean ... from the story, at least one of those people saved the state the cost of a trial and incarceration, which given what he did, Grumpy Cat good.

Can't tell if the other one had it coming or not. Until we get further details, I'm going to reserve judgment on that.

where he was hit by a silver 2003 Dodge Ram pickup

He failed to dodge, so he got rammed.

I think it just leaves it with poor depth perception.

Kinda what I was thinking.

These are two drivers who think rules are for little people, bumping into eachother by chance.
It was guaranteed to end badly.

I used to work with two tattooists who tattooed the following on eachother:

Rick got a portrait by Ollie of a black Jesus surrounded by the phrase "HANGIN' WITH THIEVES AND WHORES"

Ollie got a portrait by Rick of Gandhi surrounded by the phrase "AN EYE FOR AN EYE LEAVES ME TOTALLY SKULL farkED"

Sometimes I miss working at the tattoo shop. Never a dull moment.

You know it would turn into a zombie-style action flick at that point.  Dude with one eye wandering around trying to survive, with hordes of the blind trying to find the farker and rip his eye out.

This sounds less like road rage and more like Ramirez.
