    MIDDLEBOROUGH, Mass. -- A woman was viciously attacked in broad daylight Friday afternoon on a heavily traveled road, while other drivers passed by without stopping.

    The woman, in her mid-40s, was knocked unconscious, brutalized and sexually assaulted after pulling over on Route 28 in Middleborough after a fender bender, police said.

    The attack, which began about 4:30 p.m., lasted for more than 10 minutes. "She was definitely violently assaulted," said Middleborough police Lt. Charles Armanetti.

    Surveillance video from a nearby gas station shows the victim driving on Route 28, followed by what police believe to be the attacker's car. Minutes later, the woman's car was bumped from behind. When she pulled over, the man got out of his car and began the attack.

    "Within that 12-minute time frame, in heavy traffic, this individual got out of his car and attacked the woman," Armanetti said. "At that point she went unconscious, and that's all she remembers."

    When police arrived, the man and his car were gone, and the woman was found unconscious. She was revived and taken to a nearby hospital.

    Armanetti said they received only one 911 call from a driver who stopped to help after the man had left.

    The attacker is still at large and is described as a white man in a dark, zippered coat driving a dark-colored sedan.

    Suffice it to say, that was no traffic "accident."

    Terrible all around. Just shows how people really don't pay attention whatsoever. I'll admit, I do zone out after a while, especially when traveling familiar roads, but I almost always will notice things out of the ordinary, like two people (or even one) pulled over, or such. And while I refuse to rubberneck (I really hate rubberneckers, they cause traffic waves that back stuff up for hours and cause accidents), I do try to take a look if I can, safely, just to see if something really bad is going on, for the same reasons as what happened in this article. I'm not expecting to see anyone getting beaten, but just in case there was an accident and there are injuries or such.

    Perhaps we must practice shooting from a moving car window...

    Not really, but the this type of scumbag deserves no less than a permanent dirtnap.

    Now if this female had been armed and had some training, she could have defended herself, or at least had a fighting chance. I'm sure that if the coward who did this saw a weapon, he would have crawled back into his car and sped away.

    Stay armed...yet another example of that need...stay safe!

    I guess if that many folks had to drive by and do nothing they deserve Kerry, Kennedy, Frank, Markey et all. I suppose the flipside is if you stop to help, you could get sued by the perp and the victim for whatever the outcome is.

    MA is one of the most anti-states in the USA. Getting a CCW permit in some parts of MA is impossible unless a person is a political hack or is really rich.

    I saw that yesterday, printed it out; it goes into the training file and also for current events bulletin board, right beside the one where our Sheriff cut the number of road deputies due to the economy.

    I heard a scarier story. Same set up, a bump from behind, only after dark. No one saw those women again. The scumbag murdered like 20 before he got caught.

    A grim reminder that we should not be too quick to assume that a simple car accident does not have nefarious intentions in back of it.

    I don't know how much the drivers speeding by could actually see happening, so I don't know if any saw enough to think there was a problem.
