COOLOONGUP resident Georgie Lloyd is recovering from whiplash after she was involved in a terrifying road rage incident in Waikiki on December 13.

Ms Lloyd claims the other driver rammed her car and her vehicle was dragged about 30m.

“I was driving north on Read Street in the outside lane just passed Investigator Drive at 1.50pm.

“A ute was super close to the back side of my car in the inside lane then veered into my lane.

“I honked my horn to warn him I was in the lane, thinking that I was in his blind spot.

“He laughed out his window then pulled behind my vehicle very close to the rear of my car, then drove out of sight in my rear view mirror onto the median strip.”

Ms Lloyd said the other driver then drove half on the medium strip and half on the road and made contact with her car.

“He gave me a sold whack on the driver’s side, which jolted me heavily,” she said.

“The right-hand side of my car seemed to lift slightly and my vehicle seemed to be hooked by the ute and dragged about 30 metres.”

Ms Lloyd said she was very shaken after the incident.

She said the other vehicle was a white utility and she has reported the incident to police. Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
