A female driver forced a family off Route 222 Sunday night and a male passenger in the same car pointed a pistol at them, report Upper Macungie Township police investigating the road rage incident.
Police are looking for the suspects' vehicle, a blue 2003 Hyundai with Pennsylvania license HGS-8921. The driver is described as a female in her 20s with short, dirty blonde hair. The passenger with the pistol was a male in his 20s, wearing a black shirt. The pistol was described as having a silver slide and a black handle.
Upper Macungie police were dispatched to Route 222 and Mill Creek Road shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday.
The unidentified victim told police he was driving his family north on Route 222 from Reading. The blue Hyundai attempted to pass them at the end of the Kutztown bypass but was unable to do so.
The Hyundai followed the victim's vehicle without incident, until both vehicles reached the Route 222 split at Home Town Diner.
The suspects' vehicle again pulled out and started to pass, then intentionally drifted toward the victim's vehicle, according to police. The victim had to pull onto the shoulder of the road to avoid being struck.
Then the male passenger pointed the pistol at the victim. The victim backed off, but continued to follow the suspects at a distance until police arrived. The suspects continued north on Route 222 toward Allentown.
Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call Upper Macungie police at 484-661-5911.
