    A Waterford man was arrested today following a road rage incident in Leesburg where police said he intentionally rammed his Porsche several times near the fuel tank of a Freightliner truck.

    David Ray Godfrey, 69, was charged with attempted malicious wounding following the incident. He was released from custody on a $5,000 unsecured bond.

    The incident unfolded about 12:54 p.m. When Leesburg Police began receiving calls regarding an ongoing road rage incident between two drivers on the Route 7 Bypass between West Market and South King streets.

    A truck driver, operating a 2012 Freightliner, saw the incident unfolding behind him and attempted to move out of the way of the involved vehicles by exiting the bypass onto the ramp leading to South King Street.

    One of the vehicles involved in the original road rage incident, a black 2012 Porsche Carrera, took the same exit and was attempting to get around the truck by driving on the shoulder.

    As the truck slowed to navigate the turn on the ramp, the driver of the Porsche, unable to slow down in time, hit the back of the 2012 Freightliner truck.

    The driver of the Porsche then drove around the Freightliner, and began intentionally ramming his vehicle multiple times into the side of the truck in the area of the fuel tank. Officers arrived on scene and quickly separated the parties to investigate what had occurred.

    There were no reported injuries and both vehicles had to be towed from the scene due to the damages sustained.
