“It could’ve been a lot worse and if it were a bigger blade I was told I could’ve died,” said Keohane from his Tewksbury home Thursday morning.

Keohane was driving with his boss on I-93N in Wilmington. That’s when he said a man started tailgating them and Keohane tapped his brakes.

“I have him a warning tap and he apparently didn’t like it,” said Keohane.

Keohane says then the man followed him off the highway and tried to confront him at an intersection.

“He got out of his car, came up beside my car, exchanged a few words and threw his phone off the side of my car,” said Keohane.

Keohane drove away and dropped his boss off at work in Tewksbury. When he got back on the road he said the other driver was waiting for him.

“We exchanged a few words got into a fistfight,” said Keohane. “I thought they were punches, I didn’t even know I was cut until I went back to tell my boss and the property owner at my job.”

When Keohane returned to his job his boss called 9-1-1. Keohane was treated at the hospital and released Wednesday morning. He said he’s recovering quickly and believes his attacker will be caught soon.

“What goes around comes around,” said Keohane.

Keohane describes the car as a dark-colored, late model Honda Civic with a gold undercarriage. He said the car also has a dent in the rear driver’s side and darkened windows.
