East Lyme — Police seized two guns from a Woodbridge man after a road rage incident on Interstate 95 in East Lyme on Friday, police said.
A person driving on I-95 called 911 about 5:10 p.m. to report that after merging onto the highway from Exit 74, a black Mercedes pulled up beside the caller's car.
