Police investigate road rage incident on I-95 in Tinicum Township

TINICUM TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WPVI) -- Pennsylvania State Police are investigating a road rage incident in Tinicum Township early Saturday morning.

Troopers from the Media barracks were dispatched around 3:30 a.m. to I-95 North after two vehicles were observed speeding down the highway, with one of the drivers having discharged a firearm at the other.

Upon arrival, police found both vehicles stopped on the roadway.

But here's the twist, both cars allegedly belong to the driver with the gun.

A man, later identified as 33-year-old Carlos Ojeda-Cortes, remained at the scene and admitted to shooting at the other vehicle.

Ojeda-Cortes said the vehicle he shot at, a white 2013 Nissan Altima, was his and had been stolen from him.

The driver of the Altima fled the scene.

Police say no other vehicles were hit as bullets flew across the road.

Ojeda-Cortes was arrested and faces charges of Discharge of a Firearm Into an Occupied Structure, and Recklessly Endangering Another Person.

He failed to post bail and now remains in the Delaware County Jail.
