MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas — Investigators are looking for the person in a truck that they say shot a driver in south Montgomery County on Thursday.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital with injuries that aren’t considered to be life-threatening.

Witnesses said the shooter was in a tan Chevrolet truck with a white hood and white tailgate. It was reportedly towing a trailer. The suspect was described as being a Hispanic man who was possibly wearing a baseball hat and a blue shirt. They said he had neatly trimmed facial hair.

A woman's vehicle was struck by at least one bullet.

"I was terrified. When I heard it going off I knew it was gunfire," the witness said. "That first bullet went all the way through my bumper so it was a little bit scary."

She was not injured.
