Car Accident Leads To Shooting

A least one person was hit during a shooting Monday night in a Lexington neighborhood.

It all happened around 9pm on Sundart Drive in south Lexington, near Armstrong Mill and Man O'War.

Police tell 27 NEWSFIRST the shooting stemmed from an accident earlier in the evening near Eastland Parkway and New Circle Road. Police say one of the drivers involved in the crash left the scene and the other driver followed him.

Police say when the cars made it to Sundart Drive, the second driver rammed the other car and fired several shots. The driver in the first car was hit in the leg. He was taken to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.

Police are still looking for the other driver.

    I am not surprised at all. A lot of people are just sick and tired of all the bad drivers. The worst part is that there seems to be more and more morons behind the wheel. Next time you are at a stop light just look around and see how many self absorbed folks are on the phone just wearing it out. People nowadays have to many gadgets on them and in the car, when you are in the car driving just stick with that until you get to your destination. Pay attention to the stoplights and go when it turns green in stead of taking 15-20 seconds to "realize" it is green. With gas prices going up and people becoming more stressed out in the day to day run of things Road Rage will only get worse and worse. I guarentee it.

    Talk about road rage!!!This person is crazy. I would be upset if someone hit me then ran. But not to the point to run them down and shoot them. Good grief.

    I don't understand why people try to take matters into their own hands! They should have just followed them long enough to get their license plate number and then called the police. That's what they are there for! Now they will be in more trouble than the people who hit and ran! Morons!

    Some people are flat out crazy these days! Shoot someone over an accident? How crazy can you be? Why didn't he just follow the man, then call police to the address? Grant it the man had no business leaving the scene of the accident, but to shoot him over it was even crazier! Some people have lost all reasoning and common sense!

    SOunds like something personal went on. After all how many people randomly follow then try to kill people that hit and run their car and didnt hurt them or their kids?
