We got a call on Friday night that our friend had been killed in an apparent road-rage incident on Friday morning in Long Beach (NY). There are a few witnesses to the event, and there are several opinions as to who may be at fault for the actions taken that day. However, one thing is a fact, our friend was killed and is no longer with us. This was not the typical road-rage incident where there are two mangled cars; our dear friend Ian was run down by the other driver after he got out of his car to confront him and was instantly killed. While one witness says the driver may have panicked, police and other witnesses say his actions were intentional. Ian was the roommate of my husband's best friend since 1994, and we shared many good times together. He was extremely kind and generous, often dubbed a "gentle giant" because he stood 6 foot- 5 / 250 lbs. He has just purchased his first home, and was on his way to the closing when he was killed. While there are many sides to this story, please keep in mind my husband and I are distraught, and his family and girlfriend are completely shattered by his passing.
