Appeal over M25 'road rage' incident
Police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was forced to abruptly halt her car on the busy M25 road by an angry driver.
The victim was driving her silver BMW Z4 on the anti-clockwise stretch of the M25 between junction 11 at Chertsey, Surrey, and junction 10 at Wisley just before 8.30pm last night when a Mercedes began tailgating her vehicle.
The Mercedes undertook the BMW before pulling out in front of it. It then came to an abrupt halt, forcing the victim to brake suddenly.
A man then emerged from the car, which is described as a blue left-hand drive and foreign-registered, approached the victim’s BMW and punched the windscreen, causing it to crack.
He then returned to his vehicle, which was carrying a female passenger and drove off. The victim managed to safely move her vehicle on to the hard shoulder before calling for assistance.
Detective Sergeant Gary Hutchings, of Surrey Police, said: "Forcing a vehicle to stop on the fast lane of a busy motorway is an extremely dangerous thing to do and this incident could have had serious consequences.
"Fortunately the woman was not injured but she has understandably been left very shaken by what happened.
"I am appealing for anyone who was driving on this section of the M25 last night and may have seen what happened to come forward.”
