Philadelphia Car Crash Leads to Road Rage Killing

A Philadelphia car crash which occurred on Friday, January 14, 2011 leaves one man fatally injured because of another man’s road rage.

The traffic accident, which occurred in the 3000 block of Devereaux Street, was a simple fender bender; however, Donald Griffith, 42, was overcame with rage and pulled a gun on the other driver, 20-year-old Jamil Ransome.

Griffith fired the gun repeatedly at Ransome, hitting him once in the stomach.

Griffith fled the scene before officers arrived, but was soon apprehended.

Ransome was taken to Temple University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Stray bullets also struck another vehicle which was not involved in the accident. The person in that vehicle was not injured.

Our sincere condolences are with the family and friends of Jamil Ransome. The loss of a young life is always difficult, but the loss of a life in such a violent manner is especially heartbreaking.
