A 45-year-old driver was stabbed multiple times on the Upper East Side yesterday in what cops are calling a road rage incident—and then he tried to drive himself to the hospital.
Cops say that the victim and suspect got into a collision on E. 61st Street near York Avenue around 11:20 p.m. Saturday night. The two drivers got into an argument, and the suspect, whom CBS reports was driving a blue Ford with Rhode Island license plates, stabbed the other man six or seven times in the torso before driving away.
The victim got back into his grey Toyota Corolla and attempted to drive himself to a hospital, but crashed into a parked Mercedes about 20 blocks away on E. 76th Street near Madison Avenue.
"We were wondering what the hell happened?" a Con Edison crew member who was working overnight on E. 76th Street told the News. "Some guys went to see the guy, and he had blood on him and the airbag."
The victim, whose name hasn't been released, was taken to New York Presbyterian Hospital, where he's in critical but stable condition. Cops add that no arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.
