Woman accused of road rage

A road rage incident was captured in a dramatic cellphone video that showed two women frantically trying to escape a vehicle that chased them and repeatedly tried to force their car off a mountain highway.

The women called the California Highway Patrol on Saturday afternoon to report that they were being repeatedly cut off by the driver of a Ford Explorer Sport Trac pickup truck on Interstate 80, about 60 miles northeast of Sacramento.

The suspect, Deirdre Orozco, 50, of Santa Clara, was charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of false imprisonment, unlawful use of a badge, reckless driving, and resisting arrest. She made her first court appearance Tuesday.

She was held on $250,000 bail and was due back in court Friday.
