Man overcome with road rage driving with revoked license

A 40-year-old man was driving while license revoked in North Carolina when he cut another vehicle off and slammed on his brakes, causing injuries to 24-year-old Christopher Fisher. Fisher died as a result of the wreck.

As Reed Williams reports for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the man and his girlfriend have both been charged with felony hit-and-run.

Williams reports that the man has been driving without a driver's license since 2003 - back to other traffic violations involving DWI and open containers in the vehicle, as well as non-traffic charges including resisting arrest and trespassing.

The Violent Fugitive Task Force, part of the U.S. Marshals, arrested the man and his girlfriend last Tuesday at their home in Wake County and was held on $250,000 bond.

Fisher's death is said to have come about from the 40-year-old's road rage. In late September, there was an apparent altercation or mishap on the road, and the man sped past Fisher's Honda, turned in front of him, and slammed on his brakes.

In reaction, Fisher jerked the wheel, hit a guardrail and crashed into a bridge abutment.
