Teenage driver suffers injuries after being stabbed in road rage attack at M602 junction

teenage driver's horrifying wounds have been revealed after he was stabbed in a brutal road rage attack while stopped at a set of traffic lights.
The 19-year-old was on his way to a meal when the passenger of a car that pulled up beside his Nissan Micra got out and knifed him in the chest, according to police .
Officers said the bald attacker then got back into a blue/grey family-sized car , alongside the driver and sped off, the Manchester Evening News reported.
It happened at a junction at the end of the M602 in Salford, between 8.15pm and 9pm on June 19, Greater Manchester Police said.
The teenager, who is from Liverpool and was travelling with another passenger, had a short discussion with the occupants of the other car before the attack.

The driver of the blue/grey car is described as a white man, of a chubby build with grey or white styled hair, in his 30s.
Det Sgt Mark Astbury said: “This was a completely unprovoked attack that has left the victim with a nasty injury to his lung and chest.
“As you can see from the injury pictures, he suffered quite severely as a result of this attack, and the idea that this was seemingly unprovoked is very worrying indeed.
“I’m appealing to anyone who may have seen something to call police and tell us anything at all which may assist us in finding this dangerous individual.
“There were a lot of vehicles in the area at that time and I am particularly interested in anyone with a vehicle that has a dashboard camera which may have captured the incident.
