ROSEVILLE, Calif. (KTXL) -- A suspected road rage incident led to a stabbing on the outskirts of Lincoln on the second to last shopping day of the Christmas season.

Around noon Monday, the drivers of a white Ford F-150 and a white Jeep got into a disagreement while heading northbound on Highway 65, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The CHP says the drivers eventually took the fight off the freeway, pulling over on the exit ramp at Lincoln Boulevard.

That's when officials say 36-year-old Robert Lambuth got out of his truck and stabbed the other driver, a man from Lincoln, in the stomach.

According to the CHP, the stabbing victim was transported to the hospital and Lambuth stayed at the scene.

By phone, the wife of the stabbing victim told FOX40 her husband "wasn't doing very well." CHP officers say he suffered a major injury.

Lambuth was later arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and booked into the Auburn Jail, according to jail records. He is ineligible for bail.

FOX40 later found the truck officers say was involved in the driveway of a Roseville home. No one responded at the home when FOX40 tried to ask about what happened along the highway.
