Michigan Truck Driver Involved In Apparent Road-Rage Shooting On I-75 In Ohio

TIPP CITY, Ohio (WWJ/AP) - A truck driver from Michigan is uninjured after another trucker fired shots into his cab during what police say was a dangerous road rage incident on an Ohio freeway.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said the incident unfolded around 9 p.m. Tuesday near the Tipp City exit of I-75 in the area of the Montgomery County-Miami County line.

Police arrived on the scene after receiving a 911 call from the Michigan man, who reported that another semi-truck driver was harassing him. Sgt. Frank Simmons Jr. told the Dayton Daily News that officers determined 51-year-old Harold Baker, of Kentucky, fired into the cab of the Michigan man's truck with a 9mm handgun.

"We don't know the origin of the argument. We just know a weapon was discharged during that incident... illegally," Simmons told the newspaper.

The round ended up lodged in the chassis. No one was injured.

Baker was taken into custody at the scene on charges of felonious assault and improper use of a firearm. Additional federal charges are possible.

An investigation is ongoing.
