ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police are investigating a case of road rage. They're searching for a driver who pointed a pistol at a woman in busy lunchtime traffic Monday on Dawson Road.

Barbara Babcock did not run away when the driver pointed a Glock semi-automatic toward her, she chased his car at speeds close to 70 miles per hour down Dawson Road until she got his tag number and a good look at him.

Babcock says she saw the Red Pontiac Grand Prix weaving in and out of traffic, nearly hitting a car next to her truck. When the driver pulled alongside her, she says the driver cursed her and then pointed a pistol at her.

"If we don't report these kinds of things, who is going to stop them. I mean, that's my biggest thing. We are out here trying to work, make a living, and you got guys running up and down the street swinging guns", Babcock said.

Babcock gave Albany Police the tag number of the car, and described the driver as a black man in his 20's, clean cut with short hair.
