Overtaking motorist ‘threw knife at mum’s car while she drove home from shops’
An overtaking motorist threw a knife at the car of a mum as she was driving home from the shops with her daughter.
Jess Ebbs, from Long Sutton, says she had been driving home from Wisbech with her 16-year-old daughter on Sunday afternoon when the shocking incident took place.
She says the incident could have ended a lot worse if the knife had connected or if the other driver had lost control of the car, reports Lincolnshire Live.
"I'd just done my weekly shop in Wisbech and was driving home with my daughter in the car," she said.
"I was in a long queue of traffic, there was a lorry ahead of us, so we were sat there doing about 45mph.
"I saw a white Nissan Juke pulling in behind me out of nowhere. He had to slam on the brakes because if he hadn't he would have gone into the back of me."
After pointing out the impatient driver behind her to her daughter, Jess was left even more shocked by what happened next.
"He then pulled out alongside me to overtake," the 39-year-old said.
"As he pulled in front a knife came flying out of the passenger window.
"It was black handled – it was like a knife I would use in my kitchen.
"I had to swerve a little bit to avoid the knife and he pulled in in front of me before quickly pulling out and overtaking the car and lorry in front of us. He then shot off away from us."
Jess, who owns a pet business, said she went on to "autopilot" before realising the seriousness of what had happened.
"It all happened in the space of about 90 seconds," she said. "I couldn't believe it. We came home and unpacked the shopping and then I rang the police.
"After thinking about it I realised how dangerous it could have been – it's so shocking.
