After further investigation, the authorities determined that before the crash, Almanza and the other driver were in a road rage in Ming Avenue and Highway 99.
Thus, Almanza followed the other car and tried to run them off the road multiple times as they traveled south on Highway 99. The driver then exited the freeway and drove onto Hosking Road.
Meanwhile, Almanza kept following the vehicle. Then, he purposely hit the victim’s car from behind. As a result, the car went into the canal.
The police arrested Abel Almanza and booked him into the Kern County Jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
