Man clings to hood of speeding SUV during road rage incident

Though Fitzgerald pushed his small SUV up to speeds as high as 70 miles per hour during the incident, no one was injured. Then, in true American style, another driver intervenes with a gun, forcing Fitzgerald out of the auto.

They say the 65-year-old pulled over in the left lane, got out of his auto, and attempted to exchange paperwork with the 37-year-old driver still inside his vehicle.

At that point Fitzgerald allegedly began driving toward Kamrowski, forcing Kamrowski to jump onto the hood and hang on for dear life as Fitzgerald hist speeds of 70 miles per hour.

Both men have been bailed, and are set to be arraigned Monday, with Kamrowski saying: 'When you're hanging on for dear life, it's, you know, pretty scary'. One man forced Fitzgerald out of the vehicle at gunpoint.

"I just kept telling him to stop the vehicle, stop the auto, and he wouldn't stop", Kamrowski told reporters on Friday after leaving the State Police barracks.

Kamrowski called 911 while on top of the SUV. "Stop the auto!" And he wouldn't stop.

"I though he was gonna run over me", Kamrowski told reporters, adding that he repeatedly pleaded with Fitzgerald to stop.

NBC Boston was unable to get a statement from Fitzgerald about the incident, as he ran away from their camera and jumped into another vehicle, slamming the door behind him. Fitzgerald faces charges of assault with a risky weapon, negligent driving and leaving the scene of an accident involving property damage.

Other motorists also remonstrated with Fitzgerald to try to stop him, with Kamrowski's ordeal finally ending when the Infiniti got caught up in traffic. In video obtained by WBZ, the unidentified man said he had a license to carry a firearm. Richard Kamrowski, 65, of Framingham, pleaded not guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct and malicious damage to a motor vehicle.

Both Kamrowski and Fitzgerald were arrested once State Police officials arrived at the scene.
