Car struck, shot at on Sand Bar Ferry Road

  • Follow Crime & courts

A Beech Island man says an acquaintance intentionally struck the side of his vehicle while driving Friday and fired a shot at him.

Paul Wright, 30, said he was driving on Sand Bar Fer­ry Road when the suspect pulled alongside his vehicle, yelled at him and rammed his SUV into the side of Wright’s vehicle, a Richmond County sheriff’s report said.

When Wright slowed down, the suspect pulled a black semi-automatic firearm and fired a shot at his vehicle, hitting the front right windshield.

Wright stopped at the Five Star Express gas station to call 911, and the suspect drove off in the green Chev­rolet Blazer with Georgia tag PAM4043, the report said.

Boy, that's some

Boy, that's some acquaintance, all right.

What a way to live your life, that somebody wants to run you off the road and shoot you.

Cook County

This happens 100 times a week in Cook County, at least these folks knows each other. Just a couple of cross words among associates.
