UPDATE: According to DiGi, they have gotten in touch with the Uncle’s family.
In the past 24 hours, the social-sphere was abuzz with the #CDM25 road rage incident involving a young lady and an elderly uncle. Even though he was threaten with a steering lock, he remained cool throughout the scene captured on video.
In light of the intense situation, DiGi is making a positive move by offering to repair for damages on the Uncle’s car. If the actual accident victim had mellowed down, they are also offering to fix her car as well. One of the commenters had tipped DiGi the uncle’s son details and hopefully there is a follow up on this soon. Stay alert while driving guys! And most importantly keep cool and drive safe.
