ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Authorities have arrested a man in connection with a road rage incident in Albuquerque that left one person hospitalized.

Brandon Bonilla-Solares appeared in court Sunday and has been released on bond. He’s charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and leaving the scene of an accident.

Authorities say the suspect had been driving a van near an Interstate 40 off-ramp when he cut in front of another driver Friday. The other driver got out of his vehicle and was then struck by the van.

Bonilla-Solares left the scene.

The victim remained in the hospital Sunday and his condition has been upgraded to stable.

Court documents show Bonilla-Solares said the other driver was aggressive and had been swerving toward him.
