On Tuesday, 4-2-2013 at 12:20 AM a road rage incident was reported to the Maryland State Police Hagerstown Barrack.  A motorist (Tractor-trailer driver – 46 yr old from New Market VA) reported that he was traveling northbound on I-81 south of Rt. 40 when a small red passenger car was driving recklessly/ aggressively near his vehicle.  This passenger car pulled up in the fast lane beside his tractor, rolled down the front passenger window, and extended a shotgun out of the window pointing it directly at the passenger window of the tractor.  This vehicle then exited I-81 onto eastbound Rt. 40. 

A vehicle description was obtained from the tractor-trailer driver and a vehicle matching the description was located by Hagerstown City Police in the 600 block of W.
