FORT WASHINGTON, Pa. (CBS) -- A soggy roadway on Route 309 north near the Fort Washington Interchange is all that's left of an apparent road rage scene that left a 63-year-old man shot.

The shooting happened near mile marker four in Whitemarsh Township, Montgomery County.

State police say after getting shot, the victim was able to pull over near the Fort Washington interchange to ask for help.

He told police that he was on his way home last night when he switched lanes from the left to the right so he could exit onto the turnpike.

He said that's when a maroon sedan passed him on the right shoulder and that driver shot through his passenger window and struck him in his upper arm.

He was taken to a nearby hospital where he was treated for his injuries.

The suspect's vehicle was described as an older model maroon sedan with New Jersey tags.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police.
