Butler Councilman in Alleged Road Rage Incident
Police said they were unable to determine who ‘primary aggressor’ was in the incident.
Patrolman George Beyloune responded to the scene and spoke with McNear, 44, who police said was the driver of one vehicle, and Steven Meyers, 45, of Towaco, who was driving another vehicle. Police said both drivers said there was an alleged incident of inappropriate driving between them on Interstate 287 and that they continued to drive on to Route 23.
Police said both drivers reported they exchanged several inappropriate gestures and comments, after which the vehicles collided into each other. Both drivers also said the incident was caused by the opposite driver, police said.
“Due to the lack of uninvolved witnesses, the police were unable to determine who the primary aggressor was,” police said in a press release.
No injuries were reported and no citations were issued, although police told each driver about complaint procedures should they be interested in pursuing charges against one another.
