Parolee Arrested In San Jose Road Rage Stabbing On Highway 87

SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — The California Highway Patrol has arrested a parolee in connection with a road rage stabbing of an Uber driver that occurred last month in San Jose.

Adam Whitney Stone, 34, of San Jose, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of attempted murder, according to the CHP.

Officers responded on Sept. 26 at approximately 8:50 a.m. to northbound state Highway 87 at Capitol Expressway to a vehicle on the shoulder of the roadway and learned a stabbing had occurred.

The 24-year-old victim was driving passenger when he became involved in the road rage incident with a woman driving a white-colored sedan, according to the CHP.

The woman eventually left the area without contacting the Uber driver, but within minutes a male driver in another car pulled up next to his vehicle, asking that he pull over to the highway shoulder, the CHP said

When the man and the Uber driver emerged from their vehicles, the man pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim in the stomach, and then kicked him after he fell to the ground before fleeing, the CHP said.

The victim was transported to the hospital.

The CHP’s Golden Gate Division’s Special Investigations Unit was able to identify and track down the suspect vehicle involved in the incident, which led to officers identifying Stone as the suspect, according to the CHP.

Stone is on active parole and was arrested Thursday. He faces charges of attempted murder.

Trump Wants To Cut Red Tape, Hasten Water Projects In West

DENVER (AP) — President Donald Trump has ordered the government to streamline regulations that he says are hindering work on four major water projects in the western United States.

Trump signed a memorandum Friday aimed at helping the Central Valley Project and the California State Water Project in California, the Klamath Irrigation Project in Oregon and the federal Columbia River system in the Pacific Northwest.

The memorandum orders the Interior and Commerce departments to speed up environmental reviews, streamline regulations and come up with a timeline to comply with the regulations.

Trump says his directive will be a big help to the arid West, which relies on federally funded water projects to irrigate crops and supply cities.

The president is traveling in the West. He visited Montana Thursday and is now in Arizona.
