Schuylkill County Woman Admits Involvement in Road Rage Incident


A woman from Schuylkill County contacted Tilden Township Police and admitted her involved in a road rage incident near Hamburg.

According to Tilden Township Police, on Monday, March 8th, 2021, around 12:30pm, in the area of Route 61 northbound and Lowland Road near Cabela, the photographed female cut in front of the victim who was operating a tractor trailer. 

The female was operating a red Suzuki sedan.

Police reported that the female then jumped out of the red Suzuki and came back to the victim’s truck and climbed up onto the driver side door. The female was irate, pounding on the victim’s window and screaming profanities at him. The female then opened the driver side door and began screaming profanities in the victim’s face. The female then spit saliva directly in the victim’s face several times while he was on the phone with the 911 operator.
 
The victim was able to take several photos of the female and the Tilden Township Police posted them to their Facebook page.

Around 10:43pm, Tammy L. AMBROSE, 49,  of Cressona, briefly spoke via phone with Tilden Township Police about her involvement in the incident. She had contacted police after seeing her photo on the news and social media.
