Driver shot in Wisconsin for slowing down for ambulance


A Wisconsin man who slowed down for an ambulance would later discover he was hit by gunfire from a disgruntled vehicle behind him.

The unnamed 47-year-old man was driving in Madison’s south side on Monday night when he noticed an ambulance closing distance behind him, prompting him to slow down to about 5MPH in an effort to yield.

“The driver of a car directly behind him evidently didn’t appreciate the rapid deceleration,” said Madison Police spokesman Joel DeSpain. “He drove quickly around the victim, and as he did, the victim heard a pop.”

Upon his return home, he noticed a bullet hole in his truck, located on the driver’s side.

“He called the police but wasn’t able to give much of a description other than the suspect’s car was a dark-colored four-door sedan that had three men inside,” DeSpain said. “It all happened very quickly.”

According to The Wisconsin State Journal, the driver was not harmed.
