A truck driver was shot late Wednesday evening during an apparent road rage incident while he was driving on I-94 in Indiana.
An unnamed driver is recovering from a gunshot wound to his leg during what the Indiana State Police are describing as a road-rage incident.
It was around 6:40pm on Wednesday when the trucker decided to pass another semi headed westbound on I-94 near the Burns Harbor exit. I-94 has three lanes in each direction at that point. According to the trucker, a gray SUV approached him quickly from behind, and tried to pass him on the right. When the SUV driver couldn’t, there was an altercation between him and the trucker.
Then, according to the trucker, he “heard a gunshot and felt something strike his leg” as the SUV was finally able to pass him.
The Indiana State Patrol is asking anyone who may have seen the incident or observed a gray SUV with an Indiana license plate driving erratically to call Trooper Bohling or Det. Runde at (219) 696-6242.
