A man in North Richland Hills, Texas was able to drive himself to the hospital after being shot in the leg by another driver.
The shooting happened Monday night, as the victim was driving on the highway and a dark sedan began tailgating him. As most drivers do, the victim began to tap on his brakes in an attempt to get the other driver to back off. Unfortunately, this plan backfired with the other driver pulling up beside the victim’s truck and firing a single gunshot into the vehicle before speeding away.
The victim was struck in the leg by the shot and after stopping at the nearest exit to call 911, he was able to drive himself to the hospital. He is expected to make a full recovery and the shot never appeared to be life-threatening.
“We’re just thankful that he’s safe. He was able to drive himself to the hospital and he’s going to be okay.”
Keith Bauman, North Richland Hills

For all y’all pumping your brakes when someone’s on your bumper, you might want to think twice before doing that again. No one’s trying to get shot over a little road rage. Nobody got time for that!
