When police did arrive, they also found that a gunshot had been reported. As it turns out, a witness to the wreck had chased down the suspect with a handgun. When the witness caught the suspect, the suspect apparently punched the witness and caused him to discharge the gun into the air accidentally. The witness then forced the suspect to return to the scene of the wreck at gunpoint.
The injured people in the other cars were transported to a local hospital after the wreck. The suspect was also transported to the hospital, but his injuries were not expected to be life-threatening. It is expected that the suspect will face charges of DUI and aggravated assault.
