Road Rage Leads to Shooting on Blue Route

A driver shot up a car in an apparent road rage incident on the Blue Route Thursday afternoon and now troopers are searching for him, state police said.

The shooting happened at 3 p.m. in the northbound lanes of Interstate 476 at mile 16 in West Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, state police said.

The driver of a dark blue Lincoln sedan with tinted windows and a red and silver Lincoln emblem opened fire on a blue Mitsubishi Lancer while on the highway, officials said.

A Pennsylvania State Police spokeswoman said the shooter, who is between 40 and 50 years old, pulled alongside the Mitsubishi, rolled down his window and began shooting.

A bullet narrowly missed the 26-year-old Mitsubishi driver, lodging in the car dashboard, police said. The driver was not hurt.

The sedan driver took off after the shooting.

Police said it appears that road rage led to the shooting. A sketch of the suspect was released Thursday night. Troopers are asking anyone who recognizes the man to call them.
