A road-rage incident Wednesday morning left one man with a broken leg and a damaged car, Seattle police reported.
The incident started at about 6:30 a.m. southbound on Interstate 5. According to the 52-year-old victim, he was driving along when a car pulled in front of him and cut him off. The victim then pulled in front of the suspect and slammed on his brakes.
