FHP Seeking Tips On Tampa Road Rage Incident

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Highway Patrol is asking for the public’s help in solving a road rage incident that occurred on Interstate 275 near Tampa.

Troopers say a 19-year-old man called them Tuesday night after another motorist fired shots at him.

Hector Rosina told troopers he was cut off by a gold Cadillac as he merged onto the interstate around 8 p.m. As Rosina changed lanes, he says he failed to see the Cadillac, accidentally cutting it off.

Rosina says the Cadillac started tailgating him. He says he slowed down and eventually the Cadillac moved into the other lane and drove parallel to Rosina.

An FHP report says both drivers “exchanged angry hand gestures.” The Cadillac driver then fired two rounds at Rosina’s car. Investigators found a spent shell in the vehicle.
