Man seeks help finding enraged driver that hit him

Posted: Updated:

A man is appealing to the public in hopes of finding an out-of-control motorist that hit his vehicle and drove other motorists off the road.

Raytown resident Paul McCarty, his wife and son were traveling in the Eastwood Hills area of Kansas City after dinner Saturday night. A red Ford pickup was driving erratically.

"We saw him running drivers off the road. Going around other drivers at intersection," McCarty said. "He was just being really dangerous."

The pickup bumped McCarty's car, and the force of the collision knocked him into incoming traffic.

He was able to avoid a crash, and began to pursue the man in an attempt to get his license plate.

"I was just concentrating on him and where he was going," he said.

His actions enraged the driver even more. McCarty says the driver tried to ram his car several times and even threw a pair of bolt cutters at the family.

"I basically called off the chase when I saw how aggressive he was becoming," McCarty said. "Right now we're just trying to find all the information we can about him that will lead to his arrest."

His wife uses the vehicle to drive to and from work. The damage is barely noticeable, but this is a quest for justice.

The family is offering $500 for information that will lead to determining who was responsible for the road rage.

"We do want to find this guy," Teresa McCarty said. "He's very dangerous. He could have really hurt somebody."

Kansas City police advise drivers against following a hit-and-run driver. Instead, they say you should pull over and wait for police to arrive.
