CEDAR CITY Cedar City police said one person was hospitalized and another was taken into custody following an alleged road rage incident on Wednesday afternoon.

Police said the incident originally began as a physical fight in downtown Cedar City but escalated near the intersection of Fiddlers Canyon Drive and Main Street.

“During this escalation, the motorcycle rider allegedly produced a handgun and shot the driver of the passenger vehicle,” the Cedar City Police Department said in a press release sent to KSL.

Police said the motorcyclist left the scene but was quickly “quickly apprehended” by police at a nearby residence.

“Emergency medical personnel were quickly on the scene and provided critical care to the victim, who was subsequently airlifted to St. George Regional Hospital. The victim is in critical condition,” Cedar city police said.

There is no threat to the community, according to police.
