VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — Months after a man was left with serious injuries after a road rage incident in Vancouver, police are still looking for a suspect.

On May 31, a 38-year-old man was stopped at traffic light at Kingsway and Fraser Street.

The man got out of his car and to confront “an aggressive driver” in a white Jeep, according the Vancouver Police Department.

Soon after a dark-coloured sedan pulled over and the man was apparently assaulted by either one or both of the other drivers.

“The two cars sped away eastbound on Kingsway,” say VPD. “The victim was taken to hospital for surgery, and is now recovering.”

Police have not been able to identify the driver of the Jeep or the driver of the sedan.

They have provided the following descriptions:

The driver of the sedan was South Asian, 35-40 years old, and was alone in the vehicle.
