Road Rage Victim Dies From Injuries After Crash – Crime Online

A Massachusetts woman who was reportedly run over last week by a road rage driver has died.

Destini Decoff, 26, was in a vehicle involved in an altercation with another driver on Thursday. She and other people in the car got out of the vehicle, and the driver of the other car drove toward the group, slamming into Decoff and sending her flying into the air, WBZ reported.

The Middlesex District Attorney’s Office said that Ryan Sweatt was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious bodily injury and operating to endanger after surveillance footage failed to back up his story that Decoff and four men got out of the other car and threatened him.

Instead, they said, he made a U-turn and drove toward tham at a high rate of speed, according to WBTS.

“He chose to turn around, chose to come back. He knew what he was doing when he went towards that girl,” witnes Brett Martin said.

Sweatt said they other car pulled in front of him and slammed on the brakes, court documents say. “They’re trying to kill me!” he shouted when police arrived on the scene, WBZ said.

Sweatt was ordered held without bond pending a dangerousness hearing on Wednesday. Charges may be upgraded with Decoff’s death.

Prosecutors have not said if Decoff was driving or a passenger during the incident. Her family said she died following complications from surgery.
