Tipp City, Ohio — The State Highway Patrol says a semitrailer driver is accused of firing into the cab of a Michigan trucker’s semitrailer with a 9mm handgun in a suspected road-rage shooting in western Ohio.

The Dayton Daily News reports patrol Sgt. Frank Simmons Jr. of the Dayton patrol post says no one was injured by the shot apparently fired by a Kentucky driver.

Simmons said authorities don’t know what led to the shooting. He says state and federal charges are possible.

Simmons says the Michigan trucker called the patrol around 9 p.m. Tuesday and reported another semitrailer driver was harassing him.

The patrol says the shooting occurred near the Tipp City exit of I-75 in the area of the Montgomery County-Miami County line.
