Driver shot in the face in road rage incident on I-5 near SeaTac

KENT, Wash. — One person was injured in a road rage shooting and crash on northbound Interstate 5 near SeaTac on Wednesday, the Washington State Patrol said.

The driver of one car was shot in the face, which caused him to lose control and crash near South 216th Street shortly before 5 p.m.

Troopers said the two cars involved were speeding and driving erratically.

“It sounds like it was a road rage incident that led to a shooting. The victim of the shooting was involved in a one-car barrier collision after he was shot in the face,” WSP Trooper Chelsea DeHart said.

According to WSP, the victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center.

“We’re potentially looking for a white Audi, but we’re looking for any other witnesses that saw either a road rage incident or speeding incident to go ahead and call our dispatch,” DeHart said.

The incident led to the closure of all lanes of northbound I-5 at State Route 516 for nearly an hour. The victim’s condition is not known at this time.
