Motor vehicle accident: At 7:53 a.m., Stephanie Thompson called to report an alleged road rage incident of Brookline Road in Mason that resulted in her vehicle being struck by another, which had since left the scene. Police met with Thompson on Brookline Road. She reported that while traveling Eastbound in her 2008 Subaru, a Jeep Cherokee pulled out of Old County Road in front of her. Thompson came up behind the other car, which allegedly “brake checked” her twice. Thompson attempted to pass the car, and the Jeep allegedly swerved at her, and the two vehicles collided, with the left front of the Jeep striking the passenger side of Thompson’s vehicle. Thompson pulled over her vehicle, and the Jeep stopped in the road. Thompson exited her vehicle and had a verbal argument with the woman driving the Jeep, before the other driver left the scene without exchanging information. Police located a vehicle matching the Jeep’s description in Wilton, with one plate number from a number provided by Thompson, but have not yet been able to make contact with the owner of the vehicle.
