Two drivers involved in a violent road rage incident that ended with one man shot, the other one stabbed and both of their cars crashed are out of surgery and recovering, Colton police said Wednesday.

Detectives are still working the case to determine what set off the chain of events that lead to the crash, said Colton police Sgt. Ray Mendez.

About 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, police learned that one of the drivers shot the other in the upper body as they drove east on the 10 in Fontana, Mendez said.

Both drivers continued driving until the wounded man rammed the shooter’s vehicle near the Mt. Vernon Avenue off-ramp in Colton, disabling both vehicles, officials said.

Both men got out of their vehicles and began fist fighting on the freeway, Mendez said. During the fistacuffs, someone pulled out a knife and the shooter ended up stabbed in the upper body.

One man was taken to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton, while the other was taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center.

The case is still under investigation.
