Bronx Car Crash Ends A Man’s Life After Getting Stabbed
A strange twist of events went from car crash, obscene finger gesture, to stabbing and later death on Tuesday, July 25, 2017. According to police, a 25-year-old victim was followed and knifed in the shoulder after he pulled the middle finger at the scene of a car crash.
Moments before the stabbing, the 25-year-old reportedly drove past a car accident a block away at Hollers and Huguenot Avenues. Police sources stated that the man and his friends passed by the scene of the accident in a Honda Accord and he pulled his middle finger which enraged the other men from the car crash.
The enraged men got into a Toyota Camry and followed the Honda Accord. When they caught up to the car, they wanted to know who had pulled the middle finger at them and when the 25-year-old gave himself up they stabbed him.
Friends of the stabbed man tried to take him to a hospital but, gave up after driving a mile and instead parked outside a store and called 911. When medics arrived they rushed the man to the hospital where he later died.
Police are yet to make any arrests over this incident.
