PLATTE COUNTY, MO (KCTV) -

A 22-year-old Wichita man is accused of murder after shooting another man in connection with an alleged road rage incident. 

Bobby T. Crumpton was charged with second-degree murder for shooting Clinton Alsobrook, 35, of Charlotte, Texas on Friday on the exit ramp from eastbound Missouri Highway 152 to northbound Interstate 29. 

Crumpton is being held on a $100,000 cash bond. If convicted, he faces up to life in prison.

Platte County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd says the charges were filed the next day following an investigation by the Kansas City Police Department.

According to court documents, Crumpton was driving a 2012 Chrysler 300 and Alsobrook was driving a maroon SUV. 

Passengers in either vehicle described the other vehicle as driving aggressively and erratically.

The vehicles made contact on the exit ramp and came to a stop. Crumpton then allegedly got out of his vehicle and fired several shots from a handgun into the maroon SUV. 

Bullets struck Alsobrook in the left leg and the head near his left temple, killing him. Alsobrook and the passenger in his vehicle were not armed.

Zahnd said the case demonstrates the dangers of road rage.

“No one should lose their life because someone gets angry behind the wheel. If you’re the victim of a road rage incident, try to drive to a safe place. If you’re the instigator, this case is a tragic reminder of how quickly things can get out of control,” Zahnd said.
