GARY, Ind., Jan. 20 (UPI) -- In an apparent road-rage incident, a man shot at a suburban Chicago woman driving slowly to avoid potholes in Gary, Ind., Indiana state police said.

The woman was not injured but a bullet hit the back of her car, the Times of Northwest Indiana in Munster reported Monday.

The 33-year-old woman from Lansing, Ill., told officers she was driving slowly on a street in Gary Sunday because of potholes when a car began following her closely.

When she braked to get the driver to back off, he got in front of her as both vehicles entered Interstate 80/94. The driver of the other car pulled up beside her, pointed a gun at her and shot four or five times before pulling away, police said in a statement.

The incident was the second in a week on Interstate 80/94 believed to involve road rage. A man driving home from work was shot and injured Wednesday in Lake Station.
