The California Highway Patrol is investigating a freeway shooting that led to a collision, Fox News Digital has learned.
On Wednesday at 11:00 am, California Highway Patrol’s (CHP) Contra Costa office said that authorities responded to reports of a freeway shooting on the westbound lane of Highway 24 near Lafayette, California.
Witnesses told authorities that they heard gunshots coming from between two vehicles traveling westbound. As the two drivers allegedly shot at each other, one of the vehicles collided with an uninvolved Ford, police said.
