UPDATE, Feb. 22: El Paso police on Monday said a man run over by another motorist last week in a "road rage" incident has died of his injuries as they also released a description of the vehicle sought.

Police identified the victim as 39–year-old Jose Guzman.

Detectives said no arrests had yet been made in the case; they were still looking for the driver who ran over Guzman in east El Paso and then fled the scene.

The car sought by police was described simply as a mid-size sedan, red or maroon in color.

Investigators say the "road rage" incident began on Loop 375 north before the vehicles exited onto Bob Hope and the attack that left Guzman dead occurred.

UPDATE, Feb. 19: El Paso police on Friday said a case of "road rage" led to a motorist running over another man with his car and then fleeing the scene.

As he approached the vehicle, the unidentified suspect accelerated, striking the victim and knocking him to the ground. The suspect then proceeded to run over the victim and flee the scene."

The attacker who fled has not been identified or arrested at this point, police said. They asked anyone with information to call Crimes Against Persons detectives at 915-212-4040.
