A road rage incident in South Carolina sent one person to the hospital and landed a man and woman behind bars, according to authorities.

At a traffic light, the victim, who was driving a motorcycle, hit the side mirror of the vehicle driven by 66-year-old Shirley Cox. The victim then flipped off Cox and her passenger, 67-year-old Edward Sealy Jr., according to WMBF.

The light changed and the victim drove off and got onto the highway. Cox followed the victim, who eventually came to a dead end, officials said.

The victim tried to leave the dead end, but Cox stayed in front of him, authorities said.

According to the arrest warrant, Cox used her vehicle as a “weapon” to stop the victim from leaving, WMBF reported.

Sealy told police that both vehicles tried to avoid each other, but ended up going the same way and crashing into each other, officials said.

After the crash, police said Cox didn’t try to render aid to the victim. Instead, officials said Cox and Sealy got out of the vehicle and stopped the man from getting on his bike, with Sealy pushing down the bike and Cox grabbing the man, according to WMBF.
