An incident police are calling “road rage” led to someone firing shots into the cab of a tractor-trailer on Wednesday, Feb. 22, the Indiana State Police said.

According to Sgt. Ann Wojas, a truck driver on westbound Interstate 94 near Burns Harbor, Ind., was attempting to pass a slower truck. At the same time, a gray SUV approached at a high rate of speed and attempted to pass on the right.

Shortly after, shots were fired at the semi, and the truck driver was hit in the leg with a piece of plastic that was dislodged by a bullet. The SUV completed passing the tractor-trailer and continued west on I-94.

Wojas said that the truck driver was OK and that police are still searching for the driver of the SUV.
