A man was shot in the leg in a car-to-car shooting on the Foothill (210) Freeway in Sylmar, authorities said Wednesday.

About 11 p.m. Tuesday, two people in a late 1990’s to early 2000’s white Ford Explorer pulled alongside a silver Toyota Corolla and the passenger in the SUV fired five to six shots into the Corolla, striking the driver in the mid-thigh area, according to a statement from the California Highway Patrol.

The victim pulled off the freeway and applied a tourniquet to his wound before calling for help, ABC7 reported.

The victim was taken to a hospital in unknown condition.

The suspects fled eastbound on the freeway.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the CHP’s Newhall Office at (661) 294-5540.
