Trucker caught in road-rage crossfire 


A truck driver was miraculously unhurt after getting caught in the middle of an extended road rage shooting in North Carolina over the weekend. 

The incident happened on July 30th just after 7 p.m. in Salisbury, New York. 

According to WBTV 3, a 19-year-old man stopped his car on E. Bank St. near Clay St. and got out. As he did, a man from another car fired shots at him. The 19-year-old man then got back into his vehicle and left the scene, but the shooting driver pursued him. 

The two vehicles then drove through town shooting at each other and eventually ended up on I-85, where a tractor trailer became caught in the crossfire and was struck by a bullet. Thankfully, the trucker was not hurt in the incident. 

Eventually, law enforcement was able to stop the car that started the shooting on N. Main St. near 15th St. Four people then jumped out of the car. Three of them were stopped by police. 

One of the passengers, Bradford Bennett, was charged with resisting arrest. No other information has been released.
