BURLEY, Idaho (AP) — A Utah man authorities say caused an Oregon couple’s vehicle to roll three times in southern Idaho in a road-rage incident and then tried to get at the injured couple in the vehicle has been taken into custody.

The Times-News reports in a story on Saturday that 27-year-old Marco Antonio Garcia-Garcia of Salt Lake City is being held in the Cassia County Jail on $500,000 bond.

He is charged with two counts of aggravated battery.

Police say Garcia-Garcia rammed his Toyota Camry into the couple’s Toyota Highlander on Interstate 84 at about 7:30 a.m. Thursday.

Court documents say the Oregon couple was taken to a local hospital to be treated for cuts, bruises and concussions.

Garcia-Garcia is scheduled to appear in court on May 4.
