PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA (NBC) - New charges have been filed after an intense road-rage incident that took place on a Virginia interstate on Tuesday.

James Bringham, 44, of Woodbridge, Virginia now faces a second-degree attempted murder charge after the violent incident on Interstate 95.

Police said Bringham and the driver of a Jaguar engaged each other in an aggressive manner when Bringham tried to merge onto the highway during Tuesday's evening rush hour in Prince William County.

Investigators said Bringham used his dump truck to hit the luxury car.

Its driver, Gabriel Poventud, 25, also of Woodbridge, got out of his car and fired more than a dozen shots at the truck, according to police. His 2-year-old daughter was in the back seat.

Poventud was charged with child endangerment, attempted homicide and weapons charges.

Bringham was initially charged with reckless driving, but police added the additional, more serious charge, then took him into custody late Wednesday. No one was injured in the incident.
