TRUMBULL — Police say an 84-year-old driver punched a 76-year-old man and knocked him down after they both got out of their vehicles during a road rage incident.

The Connecticut Post reports the older man, Thomas Sammantico of Monroe, was charged Wednesday with misdemeanor assault and breach of peace.

The other driver, Vincent Cingari of Trumbull, was treated at a hospital for a head wound and given a warning for creating a public disturbance.

Police say Cingari cut off Sommantico, who then flashed his lights and beeped his horn at Cingari. Police say both drivers got out of their vehicles and confronted each other.

Sammantico declined to comment Thursday night when reached by The Associated Press. A woman who answered Cingari’s home phone said he was asleep.
