Gunshot strikes third car in road-rage between other vehicles

 

A motorist whose car was struck by a bullet on northbound Interstate-5 between Everett and Marysville on Saturday afternoon was the unintended victim in a road-rage dispute between two other cars, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The incident occurred at 1 p.m. in the vicinity of Union Slough. The victim, a Stanwood man, was driving alone when the occupants in two cars ahead of him began “mixing it up” in an apparent dispute, reported Trooper Keith Leary.

The victim heard a sound and thought his tire had blown. He pulled to the side of the freeway, discovered a bullet hole behind the driver’s door and called 911, according to Leary.

One of the suspect cars was described as a Mercedes. There was no description of the second car.
