People who don’t live in Central Massachusetts will never understand the pain of taking the Mass Pike home from Boston from anywhere between 3 and 6 PM. It’s bad enough that you have to drive directly into the sun (mind blown for Kyrie Irving), but you probably just left a job that you hate to go back to a houseful of ungrateful people who expect you to give them money, and the last thing you wanna deal with are more assholes on the road. Tensions run high to say the least. But I can’t say I’ve ever seen anything quite like this before:
Back story: Exclusive video shows an SUV driving a significant distance on the Massachusetts Turnpike with a man on the hood. An apparent road rage incident took place on the westbound side of Interstate 90 near the exchange with Interstate 95 in Weston. State police say two vehicles had been involved in a minor sideswipe in that town. After a verbal altercation, police say 65-year-old Richard Kamrowski of Framingham jumped onto a white Inifiniti SUV being driven by 37-year-old Mark Fitzgerald of Lynn. Police say Fitzgerald drove “a very significant distance” with Kamrowski on the hood, slowing and accelerating when he would not get off of the vehicle. The SUV reached speeds of 70 mph during the incident.
“I thought he was going to run over me,” Kamrowski told NBC10 Boston. “I don’t think he stopped, he kept going fast, slow, fast, slow, to get me to slide off.”
Video from the scene showed that the SUV’s windshield had been cracked. Fitzgerald appeared to run the windshield wipers with Kamrowski on the hood in the footage. Authorities say good Samaritans intervened. A man could be seen on video pointing a gun at the SUV. When officers arrived, they were initially seen pointing a gun at that armed person. Fitzgerald was arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, negligent operation and leaving the scene of a crash causing property damage. Kamrowski was also arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
“I was assaulted. That’s it,” Kamrowski told NBC10 Boston. “I just kept telling him, ‘Stop the car, stop the car,’ and he wouldn’t stop.”
Fitzgerald refused to speak with NBC10 Boston Friday, running away from our camera and into a vehicle, slamming the door behind him.
Kamrowski said Fitzgerald sideswiped him, and that he ended up on the hood during the altercation that ensued.
“I felt that he bumped me, and I kind of, you know, was pushed up,” he said.
Kamrowski said he was grateful that the man with the gun came, as well as officers.
Friends don’t let friends drive on the Pike between 3-6 PM. Best part was the drive still used his turn signal while driving with a man on his hood in rush hour traffic on the Pike. If you can get fined for driving with snow or ice on your hood, shouldn’t you be charged at least double that for failing to clear your car of human beings? Just sayin.
Does this look like a man who won’t ride on the hood of your car while traveling 70 mph in order to prove a point?
No. Fucks. Given.
If you thought the guy driving the car was dangerous, wait until Richard Kamrowski gets home. His wife is going to kill him.
“You always have to win don’t you? I told you that one of these days you’re gonna get yourself killed. Then who am I gonna play bridge with?”
He will, on the other hand, be treated as a conquering hero at the darts league on Tuesday night.
I gotta say, that is the calmest I’ve ever seen someone holding onto the hood of a car while driving 70 mph for 3 miles.
That face you make when you realize the ride is just getting started:
He was literally dialing 911 while on the hood of the car.
“Yes hello? I’d like to report an emergency.”
“OK, where are you?”
“I’m on the hood of an Infiniti in Weston.”
“We’re on the Mass Pike West.”
“This guy’s a real asshole and I can’t let him have the victory. Gotta go.”
Meanwhile the psychopath driving is yelling, “Get off my car.”
Might be easier for him to get off if you stop driving? Maybe.
The heroes of the day were the guy in the denim jacket who tried to open the driver’s side door and the dude with the gun who put that shit to rest real quick.
Proving once again that only a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with an Infiniti.
Mark Fitzerald from Lynn was the only guy on the planet with less fucks to give than Framingham Mr. Feeny. If someone has a gun pointed at me I’m staying in the damn car. Dude got out and started pleading his case.
Finally it ended up when the cops showed up and proved that the only way to stop a good guy with a gun is with another good guy with a gun.
Seriously though, that’s exactly why the Second Amendment exists. When the cops can’t get there in time citizens need to do be able to save lives. Does anyone doubt that this would’ve ended much worse if the good samaritans didn’t intervene? Even though it was caught on film the mainstream media will make a conscious choice not to focus on how this ended.
Anyway, does Mark Fitzgerald have a Facebook? And if so, can you please send it to us? Because he seems like a slugrake of epic proportions. Granted, I wouldn’t be too pleased if some dude jumped on the hood of my car, but I probably wouldn’t try to kill him. Seems a little extreme. At the same time, who the hell jumps on the hood of a car on the highway? Da fuq is you thinking boy?
I have two questions:
- Where’s his car at?
- Who’s more at fault here?
