schuylkill county woman admits road rage incident in berks county

When you read the story a couple days ago, you probably had a gut feeling the woman involved in the suspected road rage incident near Hamburg was a local.

Well, you should trust your gut a little more. Yesterday, Tilden Township PD reported that on the same day the original story went public, they got a call from a Schuylkill County woman admitting it was her face that had gone viral.

Police say that around 10:45 p.m. Monday, they got a call from Tammy L. Ambrose, of Cressona, saying she was the woman who flipped out on a truck driver earlier in the day.

Schuylkill County Woman Identified as Suspected Road Rager

You’ll remember, Ambrose was accused of getting out of her vehicle – a red, Suzuki sedan – on Monday afternoon in the northbound lanes of Route 61 near the intersection of Lowland Dr., just over the Schuylkill County line. Once out of her vehicle, she aggressively approached the driver of a tractor trailer, climbing up on his door and started verbally giving him the business.

Ambrose even allegedly opened the door of the truck, kept yelling and cursing, even spitting on the guy, now identified as a 40-year-old man from New Holland.

Before her ID could be gotten, Ambrose split the scene but later that day, she started to see her face on the news and social media.

Then, on Wednesday, Ambrose once again called Tilden Township PD and provided more details on the suspected road rage incident. She told police that she believed the driver of the truck cut her off in traffic. She stopped and got out of her car because she wanted him to apologize to her.

Regardless of why it happened, police are charging Ambrose with a host of misdemeanor and summary charges, including:

  • Making terroristic threats
  • Simple assault
  • Reckless endangerment
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Harassment
  • Careless driving

Ambrose will have to answer to those charges before District Judge Kim Bagenstose.
