Three separate drivers were headed east on the highway when the suspect opened fire. The bullets hit a 2014 Ford Escape with a family from Montesano inside the vehicle. Troopers said the suspect then shot at and hit a Chevrolet Silverado on the same highway. No one was hurt, but troopers believe drugs or alcohol were involved.

The suspect was taken to the hospital as a precaution, and will be taken into custody when he’s released. He is facing six counts of assault, reckless driving and DUI for the alleged road rage shooting incident.
