Drivers Get Fired Up in Dispute on 101 Freeway
A verbal spat turned into a shooting incident today on the 101 Freeway.
The disagreement began between the occupants of two vehicles on a surface street in Hollywood, says cbs2.com, and the "suspect's car followed the other vehicle as it traveled onto the northbound Hollywood Freeway." The heated exchange escalated into gunfire, as the occupants of one vehicle fired shots while on the road, "wounding one passenger and grazing the other."
With the gunfire bringing the disagreement to a bloody halt, the driver of the vehicle that was fired on got off the freeway.
While trying to get away, the other driver took the Lankershim Boulevard exit and drove north to Hesby Street. Shortly after, an ambulance arrived and took the victims to a hospital, police said. The victims' conditions were not disclosed. [cbs2.com]
