KENT — Road rage led to gunfire and a subsequent vehicle crash with a semi-truck over the weekend in Kent, authorities said.
The King County Sheriff’s Office believes the Sunday incident started when a driver allegedly “brake checked” a car close behind him while heading north along Highway 167, KOMO-TV reported Monday.
The driver in the rear vehicle then pulled out a gun and opened fire on the car in front, Sgt. Ryan Abbott said.
The bullets hit the vehicle, but did not hit the driver. The driver tried to escape the gunfire, only to crash into a semi-truck on the off-ramp to South 277th Street, authorities said.
The driver was injured and taken to a local hospital, police said without specifying the driver’s injuries.
The gunman left the scene and has yet to be taken into custody, police said.
