An Oregon father of two was killed in an apparent road rage incident while traveling back to the Portland area from the Oregon coast on July 13.
He evidently splashed a tiny amount of windshield wiper fluid on a BMW that happened to be next to him when he activated the wipers to clean his windshield.
Dennis Anderson was driving with his partner (one report said wife) of 18 years, Brandy Goldsbury, on their way home when a BMW 3 Series pulled alongside and eventually passed them. Although Anderson accidentally splashed some wiper fluid on the adjacent car, the BMW sped on without incident.
However, when the couple stopped at a rest area a few miles farther, they noticed the same car parked on the side of the road. When they left, the BMW followed.
“We drove by it, and then it got behind us,” Goldsbury told KGW8. “And then when the lanes started to turn to one again, the car started driving really close to the back of us almost like it was going to hit us. And then it would go into oncoming traffic and kind of swerve towards us, like trying to push us to the side of the forest, ” the forty-six-year-old Goldsbury recalled.
The couple decided to pull over and call 911.
“He [Anderson] stepped out of the vehicle, and the car pulled up parallel to us and just started shooting,” she said. “I was in my seatbelt. I couldn’t get out of my seat fast enough and there was a lot of shooting.”
Goldsbury was not hit by any of the shots.
“The last thing that he said was, ‘Oh my god, they shot me.’” she said of Anderson. “By the time I got to him, blood was coming out of his mouth,” she added.
She was able to flag down a good Samaritan who gave Anderson CPR until paramedics arrived, but he was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
Anderson had two daughters and a stepson. Goldsbury described him fondly, saying, “He’s one of those pushover dads. They would ask for something absolutely outrageous, and he would be like ‘no’ and then I would turn around and he’d be doing it, making it happen for them.”
“I don’t know if I’ve fully come to terms with the idea that he’s not coming home,” she told KGW8.
A GoFundMe account has been created for the family in the wake of the senseless killing.
As of Tuesday, authorities had made no arrests and are seeking help in identifying the car and/or the suspect.
Oregon State Police described the suspect as a “young man, under the age of 25 and small in stature, with a medium complexion and short dark hair.”
Those vague details are sure to be of no help for any citizen in identifying the alleged killer, but if the victim was black and the murderer was white, one can bet those details would be in the lede sentence of the reporting.
