Austin, TX -- March 3, 2017, a man was injured and Desmond Goston was arrested following an accident in which two men had a road rage confrontation.

The Austin Police Department was called to the scene at around 8:00 p.m. near the intersection of East Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Tilley Street.
