After a wreck last fall put his girlfriend in a coma, Ryan Douglas Fegles told police that two drivers playing a game of cat-and-mouse forced his car into oncoming traffic and caused the crash that sent several people - including two newborns - to the hospital.

Comment: Road rage is often an escalating dance with drivers in both cars needing to take some resposnibility for the outcome. In our anger management classes, we teach participants not to make eye contact with aggressive drivers and to relax to reduce stress, as well as practice different "self-talk" statements to stop or reduce those angry feelings.
