A man severely injured during what's being described as a road rage incident has not regained consciousness since the incident and LAPD detectives are on the hunt for the suspects of this heinous crime.

The incident happened on Jan. 1, 2020 at about 9:30 p.m. in the area of Woodman Avenue and Victory Boulevard in Valley Glen.
