Stabbing and Crash Conclude Road Rage Incident on Upper East Side

Car accident in Queens

On the Upper East Side of Manhattan, a violent altercation resulting from road rage led to a catastrophic event on Tuesday evening. Two 28-year-old men engaged in a fierce vehicular conflict across the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge following a near-collision in Queens amidst pouring rain. Their aggressive driving skirmish continued until they reached E. 62nd St. and Lexington Ave., where their vehicles ultimately collided around 7 p.m.

Upon the collision, the argument escalated when both drivers exited their vehicles and confronted each other. The confrontation reached a critical point when Antal Lakatos, one of the drivers, drew a knife and attacked the other, inflicting multiple stab wounds to the face and neck. The victim was urgently transported to New York-Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell and is expected to make a recovery.

Authorities arrived at the scene to find a damaged yellow pick-up truck and a black sedan, visual evidence of the intense encounter. Investigative procedures continued at the site of the crash as officers gathered details of the incident.

Lakatos was arrested and faces assault charges for the stabbing. His court proceedings were set to begin with an arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court the following Wednesday.

The New York Police Department is conducting a thorough investigation of the circumstances that led to the violent outbreak. Details on the nature of the initial near-collision in Queens which sparked the altercation are under review.
