CHULA VISTA, Calif. — Law enforcement authorities asked Wednesday for the public’s help in identifying the driver of white GMC Envoy who allegedly swerved into Mustang on purpose, causing it to crash into a guardrail in Chula Vista seven months ago.

The suspected case of road rage on southbound Interstate 805, north of Palomar Street, about 1:30 p.m. on July 10 — a Wednesday.

“The driver of a white GMC Envoy was harassing another motorist (in a gray Mustang Corba) while driving on the freeway,” according to Crime Stoppers. “During the altercation, the driver of the Envoy deliberately struck the (Mustang) while traveling on I-805 southbound.”

The Mustang driver ran off the road, struck a guardrail and suffered serious injuries. The Envoy driver may have stopped briefly, but fled before California Highway Patrol officers arrived.

Authorities said the Envoy was driven by a black male with a thin build and braided hair, and that the vehicle may have passenger-side damage.

Anyone with more information was asked to call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. Crime Stoppers offers a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest.

  • Fresh news please

    Glad to see the L/E are on the job providing the general public recent information to help them solve a COLD CASE! Old news, the driver is back in mexico enjoying the life of a wanted man…

      Older cases are solved all the time when law enforcement reaches out to the public for help. Instead of griping about how old the information is, why don't you look at this as an opportunity to perform your civic duty and help others. Cooperation is an essential component of a functional society, and negative comments such as yours will only serve to discourage others from helping.

      • doughnuts for L/E

        Good morning pin~head,

        The case may have been solved right after it happened, if L/E provided the information over 8 months ago. I see myself as being realistic not negative. You are being negative by implying I am discouraging others to help. At this point your comment is mute…
        Have a nice day,

          Law enforcement has their reasons for waiting to engage the public. It is not productive nor in the publics best interest to resopnd to a request for help with cynicism or snide commentary. I can only hope that others will have the decency to be proactive in this manner and take seriously our responsibility to one another.

          Please help by keeping a lookout for the vehicle in question and calling the hotline if you come across any useful information.

            Yes, everyone has their reasons John,

            Some have better timing than others, wouldn't you agree?

            Good luck with your crusade.

            Thank you, John. My husband is the victim in this case, and we appreciate the support…. My husband is working hard every day to regain his strength, and our lives are far from normal. He will likely be medically retired from the Navy in October, as a result of his injuries. Counting on the good people of San Diego to help find the person who did this.
