Road rage leads to highway stabbing in Lafayette

Last Modified: Thursday, December 27, 2012 11:18 AM

LAFAYETTE (AP) — Lafayette police say a 42-year-old man was stabbed around 7 p.m. on Christmas after an altercation with another driver.

Cpl. Paul Mouton told The Advertiser officers responded to the victim at the intersection of Interstate 49 and Pont des Mouton Road.

Mouton says the victim was traveling on westbound I-10 when an older, white van drove aggressively toward his vehicle. The two drivers exchanged "hand gestures" and then became involved in a physical confrontation.

Mouton said the victim was stabbed with a pocket knife in the torso and leg.

He says the second man climbed back into his vehicle and fled the area. The victim was driven to a local hospital with injuries that weren't life-threatening.

Mouton says the incident remains under investigation.
