The 38-year-old man was located and flown to the hospital in critical condition.

Officers investigated and discovered another man, John Williams, had followed the victim eastbound on Main Street and confronted the man near 1300 West. According to witnesses, the road rage began over the victim “cutting-off and brake checking” Williams as they traveled eastbound.
