The complainant reported that a vehicle attempted to run her off the road for no apparent reason and then began throwing items out the window before stopping on the Griffiss exit ramp and exiting his vehicle to throw what is believed to be an ax at her driver side window before the complainant fled the scene out of fear for her life.
