Two Stabbed in Road Rage Confrontation Near Temecula Border Checkpoint

"[One] victim rode off on his motorcycle and exited the freeway at Temecula Parkway where he collapsed at the side of the road," sheriff's officials said.

Witnesses were being sought Monday into an apparent road rage confrontation near Temecula involving a group of motorcyclists, two of whom were stabbed.

One of the injured men remains hospitalized, while the other received treatment for minor wounds and was released, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

The assaults happened shortly before 6 p.m. Saturday on Interstate 15, at the off-ramp to Temecula Parkway, sheriff's Sgt. Kevin McDonald said.

He said a "number" of motorcyclists were headed northbound on the freeway, approaching the U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint just inside the county line, when they "engaged in a road rage incident," culminating in the parties pulling off the freeway and fighting.

Several men pulled weapons, resulting in one rider being stabbed multiple times, according to McDonald.

He said deputies were called to the location and found the victim on the side of the road. The man was transported to a medical center, where he's now listed in stable condition, the sergeant said.

"A second stabbing victim drove himself to a local hospital, where he was treated for superficial stab wounds and released," McDonald said.

No arrests have been made.

Witnesses to the melee, or anyone else with information, were asked to contact the Temecula sheriff's station at (951) 696-3000.

Hidell now has disciples everywhere, hunting pitbulls, refusing taxes, terrorizing bikers, tweakers, Korean sushi chefs, illegals, fat rednecks, filipinos, menopausal bag ladies, rotund jews and overpaid ex-cops. Something must be done to STOP THIS MADNESS.

That incident is exactly what Southern California motorists are prone to do when they feel that either other motorists are either going too fast and ride on their bumper or are going too slow and inhibit their speeding. Southern Californians have a deep penchant for unnecessary speeding which is detrimental to the rest of us "Law Abiding drivers who observe speed limit signs, stop signs, red lights. I have been driving for 50 years without a citation because I dutiful observe established traffic laws. I have driven in half of the 50 states from Coast to Coast, from North to South and never, yes never have gotten a traffic citation. Why?? Because I observe established state rules and do not speed beyond established limits and always stop at Stop Signs and Red Lights which is contradictory to the California motorists who disregard established laws and drive as they please. No wonder that people from other parts of the country are apalled at the drivers in SoCal.
