A Nov. 15 road rage incident delayed a woman who was trying to rush home because one of her children had been injured.

The 33-year-old Satinwood Drive resident told Columbus police another motorist forced her vehicle to the side of the road at about 1 p.m. The driver of the second car then yelled at her for driving too fast, called her "rude names" and threatened to kill her if he saw her again, the report stated.
