State police say that a car described as a “dark sedan” pulled up next to the Uber car on the road for no clear reason and someone in the car fired several shots.
State police said a policeman “put a tourniquet on her leg” after the woman was shot several times. She was taken to the hospital, but the cops did not say what was going on with her.
The Uber driver was not hurt, according to the state police. No one knows who did the shooting.
Several shell casings were found on the interstate, which was closed as part of the probe.
