Second driver attacked on Hwy 163

SAN DIEGO (AP) – The California Highway Patrol says a second car was hit by gunfire on the same San Diego freeway where a college coed was wounded.

The 21-year-old University of San Diego student is recovering after she was hit in the rib cage while driving to school Tuesday morning on state Route 163.

The CHP says a 42-year-old Rancho Bernardo man heard about the shooting and contacted authorities to say someone shot at his car in the same freeway area at about the same time.

Officials say a bullet struck the rear window pillar of his car but he wasn't hurt.

The CHP says the shootings appear to be related but there's no word on a motive and no arrests have been made.
