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.
