Woman killed in I-95 road rage shooting near Lumberton


A 47-year-old Pennsylvania woman was killed when another driver fired shots at her car on Interstate 95 in a road rage incident, Robeson County authorities said.

The shooting occurred at about 11:40 a.m. on southbound I-95 near mile marker 23, which is just north of Lumberton.

The woman was shot through the passenger door of her car and died at UNC Southeastern Hospital in Lumberton. Her husband wasn’t hurt in the shooting.

Witnesses said the shots were fired from a gray or silver mid-2000s model Chevrolet Malibu or Impala with tinted windows and chrome around the window frame. The car was last seen getting off I-95 at Exit 22 and driving over the bridge into Lumberton, authorities said.

All southbound lanes of I-95 were closed at Exit 25 (U.S. Highway 301) but were expected to reopen by 3 p.m. Drivers have to use Exit 25 and continue south on U.S. 301 for 4 miles to get back on southbound I-95.
