LOCAL : Driver Injured in Freeway Shooting
A man escaped with only minor cuts from flying glass when a car with two men pulled alongside his on the Hollywood Freeway and one of them fired a rifle shot into his door, police said today.
The attack on William A. Estrada, 23, appeared to be the kind of unprovoked roadway shooting that spread fear across Southern California highways in the summer of 1987 during dozens of such attacks that left four dead and several injured. Estrada was driving alone in his car on the southbound Hollywood Freeway near Highland Avenue in the Cahuenga Pass about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday when the incident occurred, Sgt. Larry Ariaz said.
