A man from Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania is mourning the loss of his wife to what police have characterized as a road rage killing. The victim’s husband, Ryan Eberly, spoke with a local NBC affiliate in Pennsylvania and said that now, he wants justice.
Ryan and Julie Eberly, of Manheim, were supposed to be celebrating their seventh wedding anniversary in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Now instead, he and the couple’s six children are mourning the loss of a wife and mother.
Following a Road Rage Incident in North Carolina, a Father of Six Mourns the Loss of His Wife.
“In three minutes, my whole world is turned upside down, and I don’t know why,” Ryan told WGAL of the road rage incident.
“There’s a lot of numbness. There’s a lot of raw emotion. She just loved being around her family and friends and sharing our blessings,” he explained to the outlet.
The couple’s life together was cut short Thursday morning on Interstate 95 in Robeson County, North Carolina.
“I changed lanes, and a car was coming behind me. I didn’t see that he was going around me. I pushed him to the shoulder mistakenly. As soon as I was able, I gave him room to get back on the highway. No car contact,” Eberly revealed.
Moments after Ryan changed lanes, the car returned. Investigators claimed that a passenger in a silver Chevy Malibu is likely to blame.
“I saw in my mirror that he was passing us to the right. Gunshots were fired, and our car was hit. My wife yelled my name, and I asked if she was hit. She said yes,” Eberly told WGAL.
As Ryan grapples with his new reality, investigators are examining surveillance footage and speaking to witnesses in order to find the suspected shooter.
“I need, as a husband, to do everything in my physical power to do whatever I can to bring her justice,” Eberly said in conclusion.
We do hope that the authorities will find their suspect and that Ryan can get the justice he so desperately deserves. Our hearts go out to this mourning family and to the six children who lost their beloved mother.
According to AAA, Road rage could be linked to 218 deaths a year, mostly deliberate murders conducted by angry drivers. That number has been steadily increasing at a rate of 7% each year.
