Police Identify Woman Killed In Roseville Road Rage Incident

MOUNT CLEMENS (WWJ/AP) – Macomb County authorities have identified the woman who died while arguing with her husband in separate vehicles Monday night.

Police say 55-year-old Diane Bergiel of Roseville was killed in a car crash, but a preliminary autopsy report indicates she suffered cardiac arrest before her car slammed into a utility pole.

Police and eyewitnesses said Bergiel had been arguing with her husband, both got into separate vehicles and were shouting at one another through open windows when Bergiel struck a telephone pole guide wire near 11 Mile and Hayes Road.

Police arrested her 44-year-old husband, but released him for now. Investigators are awaiting final autopsy and toxicology test results before deciding whether to charge the husband.
