Toronto Police are investigating a strange case of road rage in Scarborough that caused a man to crash his vehicle into a number of parked cars.

It happened at around 2p.m. on Wednesday in the Lawrence Avenue and Scarborough Golf Club Road area. 

Police say a 21-year-old driver was heading westbound on Lawrence Avenue when he was involved in some sort of dispute with another motorists.  When both vehicles came to a stop, the one driver got out and sprayed the 21-year-old driver in the face with an unknown substance.  That caused the 21-year-old to lose control of his vehicle and slam into vehicles that were parked nearby. 

The other driver fled in his vehicle which is believed to be a white Audi.  Police say the man is described as around 30-years-old with an average build and a scruffy brown beard.  He was wearing a plaid shirt and shorts at the time. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact Toronto Police 43 Division at 416-808-4300.

    Not sure how someone who is stopped at a light can lose control of a car to the point where they "slam" into other vehicles.

    It will be interesting to see if any witnesses come forward. Until then, I am skeptical.
