Road Rage Accident in Monroe Sends Two Men to Jail

Two men ended up wrecking their cars in Monroe after what police believe was a road rage incident. When they couldn't get their stories straight, both men were arrested.

These people are charged with, but not convicted, with the offense. Please note, an arrest does not constitute a conviction.

The Georgia State Patrol reported that they responded to a crash on Ga. 10 at New Hope Road just before midnight on Sept. 4. The vehicles involved in the wreck were a 1997 Nissan maxima driven by Russell Marron Owens, 41, from Monroe and a 1995 Ford F-150 driven by Timothy Wade Phillips, 26, from Lawrenceville.

A spokesman with the GSP said there were no injuries. He said the vehicles had made contact with each other while eastbound, but both vehicles had been moved prior to the trooper's arrival. Each driver reportedly had different stories about just how the wreck occurred. They were both charged with aggressive driving.

GSP took over the scene and Walton County Sheriff's deputies took both men to jail.
