COLUSA COUNTY, Calif. — Authorities are searching for a person accused of shooting at a marked Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) vehicle on Tuesday, hours before the company began shutting off power in an effort to prevent wildfires.
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) announced Wednesday that the marked pickup was traveling in the fast lane on Interstate 5 southbound, south of Lenahan Road in Colusa County when the passenger-side window shattered.
The driver was not injured, the agency added.
The driver was unable to determine why the window shattered when the incident happened around 8 p.m., but additional evidence gathered by CHP indicated that a bullet struck the vehicle.
The agency said another vehicle was reportedly traveling in close proximity to the truck at the time of the incident, but details on that car are "limited at this time."
The CHP Northern Division Investigative Services Unit is looking into this incident.
