Car Crash Accidents | Port St. Lucie

Q: What if an enraged driver tries to attack me after a Port St. Lucie car accident?

A: Emotions can run high after a Florida car crash. The best way to ensure that everyone walks away from the accident is to stay calm and keep your head clear. Unfortunately, people driving while angry or under stress can overreact to the situation, going so far as to confront or even attack the other driver. If an aggressive driver in Port St. Lucie tries to confront you after an accident:


  • Roll the windows down or exit your car.
  • Yell back, or make offensive gestures that will escalate the situation.


  • Remain calm.
  • Lock your doors.
  • Call 911 and show him the phone, indicating that help is on the way.
  • Leave the scene if you feel that your safety is threatened, such as if the other driver has a gun or picks up a blunt object that could break your windows.
