Woman Shot While Driving on Florida’s Turnpike in Broward County

Florida Highway Patrol is looking into a drive-by shooting that occurred Saturday morning on the southbound lanes of the Turnpike near the Griffin Road exit in Fort Lauderdale.

At 6:42 a.m., a 24-year-old Pompano Beach woman was driving a white BMW when she heard and felt her vehicle get shot at twice with two gunshots. The first bullet entered her left hand and went into her right upper leg. The second shot hit her left front fender.

The suspect kept moving southbound in a dark-colored Crown Victoria without stopping. It is uncertain who the driver of the Crown Victoria was. The woman was airlifted to Memorial Regional Hospital, where she received serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
