Man clings to hood of speeding SUV during Massachusetts road rage incident

State police say the two men got into a minor crash, started arguing, and somehow Kamrowski ended up on the hood of the auto.

The two men exchanged heated words and at some point Kamrowski reached into Fitzgerald's vehicle and snatched a metal water container and stood in front of Fitzgerald's SUV, police said.

"I thought he was going to run over me", Kamrowski told the NBC affiliate. "He kept going fast, slow, fast, slow tried to get me to slide off".

Two men charged in a wild freeway feud in MA, in which one took a hair-raising ride on the hood of the other's auto, were arraigned in court Monday and blamed one another for turning a minor fender bender into a unsafe road-rage confrontation. Richard Kamrowski clung to the hood of a vehicle as it sped down a MA highway for about three miles on Friday, CBS Boston station WBZ reports. Kamrowski told reporters he hung on for survival for at least three miles and somehow managed to dial 911 while riding on the hood.

The road rage confrontation ultimately ended after another driver on Mass Pike was able to get Fitzgerald to pull his auto over.


"I don't think he stopped", Kamrowski said. He tried to get Fitzgerald to stop but says he kept trying to take off. Several witnesses captured video of Kamrowski on the hood as the SUV drove by.

Video shows Fitzgerald telling police what happened. According to local station WBZ4, the good Samaritan that managed to get Fitzgerald to pull over was not charged after it was confirmed that he had a valid license to carry a firearm.

"I'm just glad that the two people that surrounded the guy were there", Kamrowski said. The man with the gun and another driver kept Fitzgerald there until troopers arrived.

Fitzgerald, of Lynn, is charged with assault with a risky weapon and other violations.

Richard Kamrowski, 65, of Framingham, was released on his own recognizance after not guilty pleas to charges including malicious destruction of a motor vehicle were entered on his behalf.
