A woman who was terrorized by a driver in a fit of road rage says the damage done to her car looks like someone shot her back window out.

KUSA - A woman who was terrorized by a driver in a fit of road rage says the damage done to her car looks like someone shot her back window out. 

Susan Jewsbury told 9NEWS she drove past the intersection at 32nd and Youngfield in Wheat Ridge around 6 p.m. on Nov. 13. It was then a black pickup truck started slamming into her. 

"My car kind of jetted towards the left. I thought I was going to run into the vehicle beside me," Jewsbury recalled. 

They didn't care about her handicap license plate, she said; they just kept hitting. 

"At one point they were pushing me down Youngsfeld," she said. "I had my brakes on."

She says she then turned into the closest public place; a Chili's parking lot. 

"I was afraid to get out of my car," she said. "I didn't know if he had a gun or if he was going to keep ramming me," Jewsbury said. "Should I stay in the car or get out?"

Luckily, she says a Good Samaritan pulled in and got out of his car to help. 

The truck sped off. 

"I was thankful for the man that stopped, that got out," Jewsbury said.  

Sara Spaulding with the Wheat Ridge Police Department says Jewsbury is lucky she wasn't killed. 

"I would have been terrified if this had happen to me," Spaulding said. "We're very concerned about the violent nature of this incident. It was a continual battery by this truck and the way her car looks is very concerning."

Jewsbury says she is mostly concerned about other drivers. She doesn't know why this happened but hopes her story will help get this person off the road and behind bars. 

"Whoever it was just kept running into my vehicle," she said. 

She also has a warning for whoever was behind the wheel that night. 

"I don't know what your deal is, but you're going to hurt somebody bad," Jewsbury said. 

Wheat Ridge Police say there have been other incidents like this posted to social media, but officers urge people to make a formal police report. 

Right now, they're looking at video footage from local businesses to help with Jewsbury's case. 

The pickup truck involved is black, lifted and with a chrome push bar on the front, according to police.

If you know anything about this case, please call Wheat Ridge Police at 303-237-2220.
