A driver was hospitalized in critical condition Friday evening after he was shot in a possible road rage incident in Riverside with a woman and two children also inside the vehicle.
The shooting occurred just before 4 p.m. in front of a construction equipment company at 656 East La Cadena Drive, where the vehicle collided with a tree.
The male driver was transported to a local hospital in critical condition with a gunshot wound, a Riverside Police spokesman said.
Video from the scene showed a woman, believed to be the victim’s girlfriend, covered in blood and speaking to officers. Two young children were being cared for by a relative nearby.
No information about the gunman was immediately available.
