Woman says other driver failed to stop, nearly collided, got pushed in Estero

— A woman who nearly was involved in a minor crash in an Estero community at a stop sign while traveling to carpool with her twin sister says the driver of the other car yelled at and pushed her.

According to a Lee County Sheriff’s Office report:

About 8 a.m. Monday Lynn Abbate said she was going to her sister’s nearby house when the driver of another car did not stop for a stop sign, causing her to nearly hit the other car. Abbate said she honked her horn to alert the other driver.

The driver turned around and followed Abbate to her sister’s condo. Abbate stayed in her car and the other driver got out and began screaming at her. Abbate got out of her vehicle, and the other driver, a woman, screamed some more and pushed her.

Abbate’s sister, Allison Abbate, saw what was occurring. Lynn Abbate told deputies the driver of the other car fled after seeing her write down the license plate number.

Deputies located the driver and vehicle information in a database, but no arrests have been made.
