VIDEO: 70-Year-Old CA Deputy Dies After Road Rage Attack

A San Bernardino County sheriff's deputy who was "violently attacked" and severely injured after a traffic collision on New Year's Eve has died, authorities said.

Deputy Lawrence "Larry" Falce, 70, succumbed to his injuries Tuesday night, according to a statement from the Sheriff's Department.

Falce was off-duty when he was involved in a minor crash about 10:50 a.m. Sunday, investigators said. After the crash, both drivers stopped and made contact.

Then, for reasons unknown, the other driver hit the deputy, severely injuring him, according to a San Bernardino Police Department news release. The Sheriff's Employees' Benefit Association, of which Falce was a member, described the assault as "brutal" and said the deputy never regained consciousness after the attack.

A suspect is in custody, KTLA reports.

Sincere Condolences to this Deputy's family and his department. This road rage thing is getting to be at epidemic stages. There are a lot of mentally ill people on the road, more than we think. I have encountered several but have managed to avoid contact with them. Unfortunately this deputy did not have a choice with an accident involved. There may have been something else with this butthead that set him off.
