Police say prior to the accident, the victim was backing out from a home on the 200 block of N. Butler. When she was backing up, another vehicle drove by and a suspect inside the second vehicle fired a hand gun at the victim. The suspect vehicle took off after firing multiple shots. The 20-year-old woman drove away, but shortly after lost control of her vehicle and hit a utility pole.

The woman was not seriously injured as a result of the shooting. Due to the crash with the utility pole, the woman did have a minor injury to her face. She received medical treatment on the scene.
