Andover road rage incidentleads to two court summons

ANDOVER — Two Lawrence residents are heading to court after an accident on Union Street led to a road rage incident between two drivers Monday morning.

A 51-year-old Lawrence woman will soon be due in court for negligent operation of a motor vehicle, and a 30-year-old Lawrence man for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, after their cars collided when one vehicle failed to yield to the other, according to Andover Police Commander Charles Heseltine.

The accident was reported at 8:43 a.m.

What happened after the cars collided is subject to conflicting reports from both people, but at some point during the argument, the male driver threw a full bottle of Vitamin Water at the woman, Heseltine said.

While the woman was given a summons for her driving, the throwing of the beverage earned the man the assault summons, according to Heseltine.

Six Andover police officers, including a sergeant and three detectives, were called to the scene to assist.
