Alleged road rage fight escalates to stabbing, high-speed chase in Bethany

BETHANY, Okla. - An alleged road rage incident escalated into a fist fight and a stabbing, leading to a high-speed chase and ending with a crash involving multiple cars.

At around 4 p.m. Tuesday, Bethany Police received reports of a disturbance that started at 10th and Council, later ending at 30th and Rockwell.

When they arrived, they found "one male subject was stabbed multiple times," according to Jon Reid of the Bethany Police Department.

Eyewitnesses say the two cars were driving erratically when one crashed into the other.

A male got out of each car and started arguing. Police say it quickly escalated to a fight and that’s when a female inside one of the cars got out with a knife and allegedly stabbed the lone male in the chest and back.

Officials tell News 4 they transported the victim, still alive and talking, to the hospital. But the story didn’t stop there.

"The suspect's vehicle then fled and a short pursuit ensued," said Reid.

It was a short, but high-speed pursuit. The suspect's white car reportedly reached speeds of more than 100 miles per hour as it sped down Rockwell, eventually T-boning a black SUV and hitting another vehicle.

Crash victims at that scene say they feel like they are lucky to be alive.

As for the couple causing all the mayhem?

"Suspects were taken into custody at that time. We have both a male and female detained," said Reid.
