Road rage hits a whole new level of anger

Since the invention of the automobiles and eggs, kids have been egging cars.

I am not sure what the fun is in doing this, but it has been done for years.

Yesterday, a whole new level of anger came out because some teenagers were egging some cars in Ohio.

One driver in a SUV had his car egged. He proceeded to chase the kids that egged his car. He caught up to one of the 14 year old kids and shot the kid to death.

So how horrifyingly ridiculous is this?

A 14-year-old boy who was throwing eggs at cars along with two other teenagers was shot and killed by someone who had been in a sport utility vehicle that was hit, police said.

Danny Crawford was killed by a gunshot wound to his upper body, Franklin County Coroner Brad Lewis said. He died in an alley on the city's west side early Saturday, authorities said.

The teens were throwing eggs at cars when an SUV that was struck chased them, Detective Tim Huston said. The vehicle stopped and several gunshots were fired, he said.

Police were looking for the shooter, who fled in the SUV, Sgt. Dana Norman said. The SUV believed to be involved was found a short time later near where Crawford died.

The other teens were not hurt, police said.
