CLEVELAND — Geneva Vason believes she's lucky to be alive after a road rage incident, Cleveland police report caused Vason to slam into a utility pole on the cities east side.

Vason told News 5 three young women in another car thought she cut them off as she pulled onto East 93 at Heath Avenue.

Vason said that's when a passenger in the other vehicle threw an unknown liquid in her face, temporarily blinding her, causing the crash.

Vason said she was left hospitalized after Aug. 20 incident for more than a month with a shattered ankle, compound fracture of the knee and broken ribs.

To make matters worse, Vason said the three women turned around, drove back to the scene, taunting and swearing at her.

Vason reported the women recorded the heckling on their phones as she lay badly injured on the front seat of her car.

“I just started freaking out, and I started screaming, for someone to call 911,” Vason said.

"It hurts, it hurts really bad. It makes me depressed, it makes me sad.”

“Not only do you throw something in the car that causes me to hit a pole, but then you come back and then you say that.”

“It’s hard at times to sleep at night, because all I keep thinking about is the car accident. It replays in my head, over and over and over.”

Cleveland police have a surveillance picture of the suspects vehicle, a gray or silver Cadillac SUV, or Chrysler 300.

Investigators said the other driver and the passenger will face charges of felonious assault if they're caught.
