(KMOV) – Police arrested a man they say injured one person and damaged several vehicles during an apparent case of road rage in Caseyville on Sunday.

Silvestre Barrios, 29, was charged Monday with felony criminal damage to property.

According to police, a man was driving in the 8600 block of New Bunkum Rd. around 1:45 a.m. when Barrios began chasing him.

The victim called police and, while talking to the dispatcher, Barrios rear-ended his car several times, causing it to roll over and crash.

Barrios’ vehicle eventually struck a utility pole. Two parked vehicles were also damaged during the crash.

Police say Barrios and other occupants in the car then fled the scene. They were later apprehended and arrested.

The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
