ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – Arlington police say a man was shot and killed in an apparent road rage incident on I-20 between Cooper and Matlock on Sunday.
According to police, a 19-year-old man was shot in the head while driving along the freeway. The victim lost control of his pickup truck and crashed into a National Tire and Battery sign after he was shot.
During investigation, a witness reported seeing a black four-door sedan with dark-tinted windows that pulled up alongside the pickup truck on the freeway. The witness said one shot was fired from the sedan and into a rolled down passenger-side window of the truck.
Witnesses believe there were at least two occupants in the black sedan, and it continued to travel eastbound on I-20 after the shooting.
Investigators believe the black sedan had silver rims and low profile, possibly after-market wheels.
The 19-year-old driver was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner identified the victim as Dylan Spaid.
A female passenger in the pickup truck was also injured in the crash. She was transported to a local hospital and treated for injuries unrelated to the shooting.
Police say this is an active investigation.
