Driver smashes girl’s rear window with microwave at fuel station in Fort Lauderdale – WSVN 7News | Miami Information, Climate, Sports activities | Fort Lauderdale
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) – A reported case of street anger in Fort Lauderdale caused problems at the gas pump for a woman who said an angry driver who followed her to a gas station threw an appliance on her car.
Speaking to 7News on Sunday, Kiana Shine said she called the police to report the driver on Friday night.
“Some man just broke my window. He’s sitting in a black Mercedes-Benz, ”you can hear her say in the cell phone video as she and a friend followed the driver.
She said the ordeal began at around 6:45 p.m. at an intersection along the 800 block of the South Federal Highway
Shine said she was slowly turning left in her Mazda, and that angered the driver.
“There was a car behind us, a black Mercedes-Benz, honking its horn, honking very aggressively,” she said.
Shine said the driver followed her to a nearby Shell station.
The victim said the man got out of his Mercedes, threw an energy drink can on her car, and walked straight towards her.
“I rolled up my window as fast as I could and before I knew it he was crouching and spitting on my window,” she said.
When they thought the coast was clear, Shine and her friend decided to refuel the Mazda, but they accidentally pressed the button for the trunk instead of the gas locker.
Before they could do anything about it, Shine said, the angry Mercedes driver was back. That’s when they decided to get out of there.
“When I try to pull through, all you hear is ‘Boom’,” she said. “I look back and all the glass is broken.”
Shine said the man took a microwave oven out of her trunk and threw it on her car.
“He slammed it here, I guess, and it rolled off,” she said as she showed the damage to her car.
Shine said the angry driver drove off and they followed him to write down his license plate. However, she said he escaped them easily.
“I’ll take that as evidence,” she said when she showed the can.
Shine has since filed a complaint. She hopes the police will catch up with this driver and hold him responsible for an unprovoked attack.
“Nothing. We didn’t hurt him,” she said, “and he’s a clean guy. You would never expect that in a million years.”
Gas station staff said they did not have access to their surveillance cameras. They said the owner should be there on Monday.
