On a Tennessee highway, a driver was shot in the chest after he honked his horn at another driver who was drag racing.
A tweet from the Memphis Police Department says that at 5 a.m. on May 24, police went to Interstate 240 to help a person who had been shot.
Police said that the driver was taken to the hospital in a very bad state.
WHQB reported that the driver told police that a Dodge Charger and an Infiniti were racing on the highway and that he honked his horn at them to avoid a crash.
WHQB says that the driver of the Infiniti drove away quickly, but then slowed down until the car that honked was next to it.
