Road rage sends man to hospital with stab wound

TAMPA — Mark Fangmann was on his way home Friday evening when a road rage incident sent him to a hospital, reports the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

Fangmann, 51, was driving his GMC sport utility vehicle on Morris Bridge Road north of Fowler Avenue when the driver of a white sedan cut him off and proceeded to drive slowly, said Debbie Carter, a Sheriff's Office spokeswoman.

Irritated, Fangmann pulled alongside the woman and hoisted his middle finger before the two of them stopped at a light, Carter said.

He told deputies the woman got out and began to scratch his SUV with something sharp.

He stepped out of his truck to confront the woman. An argument escalated into a fight quickly, and he felt a jab in his abdomen before she rushed to her car and drove away, Carter said.

He followed her briefly before heading to New Tampa. When he got home, Fangmann realized he had been bleeding and called deputies to report he had been stabbed. Tampa Fire Rescue took him to Tampa General Hospital.
