TURTLE CREEK, Pa. —
Police are investigating after a Turtle Creek man said he was an innocent victim of a road rage confrontation early Thursday morning.
Steve McDougald, 42, told Channel 11 News he was driving home on Greensburg Pike about 1 a.m. when three young men in a car pulled up next to him, called him racial slurs and threw trash at his car.
“I put my high beams on to see what they were doing. The light changed, and it proceeded from there at speeds that reached 85 mph,” McDougald said. “I just wanted to get home.”
McDougald said he tried to race away from the men, but they followed him.
“I came home sliding into first base, my car got hit and then two to three shots got popped off,” McDougald said.
According to McDougald, he took pictures of his damaged car and gave them to investigators. He said he admits to having a criminal record, but is unsure why he was targeted.
“People know me. I’m a tough guy. If I say I didn’t instigate nothing, I didn’t instigate nothing,” McDougald said.
Authorities said they’ve questioned possible suspects, but no arrests have been made. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact police.
