Driver's ear bitten off in road-rage attack

COLEFORD, England (AP) -- Two men, apparently overtaken by road rage, attacked the driver in front of them, repeatedly bit him and chewed off a piece of his ear, the victim said.

Glen Thompson, a 41-year aircraft engineer, said he was driving with his wife and two daughters Sunday night when he pulled over to allow a tailgating motorist to pass near Coleford, 135 miles northeast of London.The trailing car also pulled over, and the driver and passenger got out and punched Thompson before sinking their teeth into him.

The men also punched his wife, Suzie, and rammed his car.

Doctors were unable to reattach the severed top of Thompson's ear.

Police were searching for the two men.
