The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is asking for help from the public in investigating an interstate shooting that led to a semi truck vs. structure crash in San Joaquin County on Thursday.

The truck driver was transported to a hospital. It isn’t clear what condition he is currently in. The identity of the truck driver has not been released, but according to reports, he was a 37 year old resident of North Carolina.

There is currently no information available about the shooting suspect.

“If you were driving NB on I-5 between SR-120 and Louise Ave, between 12:30-1:00 p.m. on 6/15 and have a dash cam, we need your HELP. Please contact CHP (ISU) with any footage. You can contact ISU at (916)731-6580 or CHP-Stockton at (209)938-4800. NO TIP IS TOO SMALL,” CHP said.
