Mom Killed In Road Rage Horror - What You Should Do To Stay Safe If Somebody Follows You Home
A mom teaching her daughter how to drive was shot and killed in a horrific incident of road rage. INSIDE EDITION reports.
An anguished husband is calling out for justice after his beloved wife was gunned down in a road-rage case that is horrifying America.
Tammy Meyers, a nurse and mother of four, was teaching her 15-year-old daughter to drive in a school parking lot.
As Tammy was driving her daughter home, she got into what police called "a near-collision" with a car with three men in it. Both cars pulled over and Tammy's husband, Robert, said the other driver got out of his car and came at her aggressively.
Robert told INSIDE EDITION, "She tried to get away. He pulled in front of her to stop her, she still got away."
Tammy drove home followed all the way by the other car. Cops say Tammy's son came out to help and gunfire erupted. A bullethole can be seen in the wall.
Forty-four-year-old Tammy was hit in the head. Sshe was taken off life support over the weekend and died.
Robert said, "She came home, she was followed, and she was murdered."
Police released a surveillance video of what they believe is the killer's car fleeing the Las Vegas neighborhood.
Tammy's grieving husband, two sons, and a nephew spoke to INSIDE EDITION about the tragedy, but the teenage daughter learning to drive was too devastated to talk.
Robert told INSIDE EDITION, "She wants people to know she loved her mommy and she wishes that she could have her back and she's not gonna get her back."
Police also released one sketch of a suspect.
Tammy's death is the latest in a wave of road-rage incidents. Just last week, a shocking video was posted online. One dad was driving on a road in North Carolina with his daughter when another driver rammed them repeatedly.
"He's trying to kill us! Please! My God, someone, please." His daughter can be heard screaming.
So, what should you do if, like Tammy Meyers, you find another driver following you after a road-rage incident?
INSIDE EDITION's Les Trent spoke to security expert Steve Kardian.
He told Trent, "Give them space, make a forgiving little gesture without looking at them. Continue on going, if they persist drive to an area like a convenience store or gas station - somewhere where you believe there are going be cameras."
