Driver: Road rage incident led to shooting | abc11.comDriver: Road rage incident led to shooting
GARNER, N.C. (WTVD) -- A Garner man is speaking out after being shot in an apparent road rage incident.
Justin Summers said he was shot on N.C. Highway 50 just south of U.S. Highway 70 in Garner on Dec. 2 just before 9 p.m.
The bullet went through Summers' chest, traveled just outside his collarbone and exited his right armpit. Had it been inside the collarbone, it probably would have torn through vital organs and killed him.
Summers said the incident started as he was driving east on U.S. 70 through Garner. He said a man in a white Chevy Impala was tailgating him. So, he pulled to the right and got behind the car to give the guy a dose of his own medicine.
"I moved over to the center lane, the turn lane in the middle of the road and I stopped to let him go," said Summers. "He pulled up beside me, rolled down his window. I rolled down my window. He like, 'What's up?' I said 'What's up?' and then he shot me."
If someone is tailgating just pull over and let them go, donít try to give him a taste of his own medicine.
