TEMPLE (June 24, 2013)--Two drivers were sent to a Temple hospital Monday after their cars collided at about 1:45 p.m. on Interstate 35 in south Temple in a crash that may have been the result of road rage, police said.

Officer Mike Tackett said a Mercury Gran Marquis was southbound on the highway near mile marker 294 when the driver tried to change lanes.

The driver of a Saturn refused to let the Mercury’s driver into his lane and as a result the cars collided and spun into a concrete wall.

Both drivers suffered what Tackett called minor injuries.

The driver of the Saturn was taken by ambulance to Scott & White Hospital and the driver of the Mercury also went to Scott & White in a private car.

Tackett said the accident is under investigation and because of the allegation of road rage will receive special attention.

Traffic on the Interstate was backed up for a time while crews cleared debris but had reopened to normal flow by 2:45 p.m.
