DRAPER, Utah (ABC4) — Two drivers of vehicles involved in a road rage incident are now in police custody after one crashed into a sign, rolling the vehicle and causing damage to an uninvolved vehicle, according to Utah Highway Patrol.
Two vehicles were involved in a road rage incident around 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 22 while driving southbound on I-15 near the Bangerter Highway offramp exit in Draper.
