Police say they are still investigating a violent case of road rage last week that landed a Calgary mother in the hospital.

Karalie Red Old Man was driving her daughter on the evening of Dec. 7 when she said a BMW began honking, seemingly because its driver couldn't pass her at Fourth Street and 40th Avenue N.W.

Police say the BMW then aggressively tailgated the van, rear-ending it at one point.

When Red Old Man stopped near the Mount Pleasant Sportsplex in the northwest, police said the driver of the BMW boxed her in.

Red Old Man says one of the two men got out of the BMW, grabbed her head and smashed it against her car, cutting her lip and breaking her glasses. 

She says she grabbed a hockey stick from the van to defend herself, but one of the two men grabbed it and smashed out her van's windows.

When bystanders called police, the men drove away in a silver two-door BMW with Alberta plates.

Police said the car likely has damage to its front end and passenger side. Witnesses were unable to get the licence plate number.

Red Old Man was taken to hospital in an ambulance with injuries to her face, jaw, lips and teeth.

Police are looking for two men in their early 20s, with dark brown or black hair and medium builds.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
