    LOS ANGELES, CA - FEBRUARY 03: Drivers use the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane (C), also called the diamond or commuter lane, at sunset on the 118 or Ronald Reagan Freeway on February 3, 2005 near Simi Valley, California. To encourage sales of environmentally-friendly hybrid cars, lawmakers are contemplating legislation that would allow states to determine whether to allow hybrid vehicles with no additional passengers to be driven in highway HOV lanes, currently reserved only for motorcycles and vehicles carrying multiple passengers.

    Indiana State Police are still looking for the driver who fired shots at another car Thursday night on I-80 in Indiana.

    No one was hurt during the shooting, which police say allegedly stemmed from road rage. 

    A couple from Merrillville was driving in the left lane near the I-80 Lake Station exit when a silver or gray Dodge Charger with tinted windows drove up behind them.

    The driver began flashing the Charger's headlights at them before moving to the middle lane and pulling alongside them, according to police reports.

    The driver, described as a black male wearing glasses, pointed a gun at the couple and allegedly fired multiple shots at the car.

    The couple pulled over. One adult suffered injuries from the broken glass but declined medical attention. A child in the car and the other adult weren't injured.

    Anyone who may have witnessed the incident should call Det. Mike Bailey at the Indiana State Police Lowell Post at 219-696-6242.
