Domestic Violence Related High Speed Chase on 681

Description: 

I swear I just saw some sort of domestic violence related high speed chase. I was driving along 681 near Albany behind a smallish, silver SUV that was traveling at a pretty reasonable pace when a small sports car came speeding up behind me and whipped around my car in order to wedge itself into the small space between me and the silver SUV. The sports car almost got into a head on collision with someone coming from the other way around the blind curve that was just in front of us. The SUV pulled over into the nearest driveway. I saw a young looking woman driver roll her window down, throw her hands up, and scream, "What the F*#K is your problem!" It was clear that she knew the guy. He parked his car on the side of the road, got out, and started stomping toward her. I was very afraid for her and tried to think quickly about what I could do to help. I pulled over up ahead of them a bit to try to make it clear to the guy that someone was watching. I scrambled around in my car looking for a pen to write down his licence plate number but didn't find one. I thought about getting out of the car, walking up to them, asking the girl if she was okay, and calling 911 if I needed to. My dad had told me that even if you don't have cell phone reception, you can still get through to 911, but I didn't understand how that could be possible, and I didn't think this was a good time to test that theory. I found some mace and started to open my car door, but they both were pulling out of the driveway, traveling in the opposite way that we had just been traveling. I still hadn't gotten the guy's licence plate or anything, so I tried to follow them for a minute to see if I could get it and still call 911 from someone's house or something, but they were traveling too fast, and I lost them. These were probably all dangerous ideas that maybe I shouldn't have done, but I was just really fearing for this girl and wanted to help. I left the situation feeling powerless and depressed. I just hope she drove somewhere where there were other people around.
