Indiana State Police Troopers are on the lookout for at least one person in a stolen truck following a Wednesday night shooting at O’Bannon Woods State Park in Harrison County.
ISP says two people were shot while driving in their car, causing the vehicle to crash into the woods.
The car was occupied by a family of three. The man driving the vehicle was shot multiple times. A woman in the passenger seat had also been struck by the gunfire, but the car's third occupant in the back seat of the vehicle wasn't hit.
The driver of the vehicle had to be flown to the University Hospital of Louisville with life-threatening injuries. Both passengers were taken to the hospital by ambulance.
Police say the family had left O'Bannon State Park after hiking when for unknown reasons, a white Dodge Avenger pulled up quickly behind their car with its high-beams on.
ISP says the family pulled to the side of the highway and attempted to allow the Avenger to pass, but the Avenger pulled up beside the car and an occupant fired multiple rounds into the family's vehicle.
After the shooting, officers believe the driver of the Avenger fled the scene and abandoned the car in a cornfield approximately 15 miles away, near Carefree, Indiana. ISP says the driver then stole a pickup truck parked at a nearby residence and fled the area.
Now, Investigators are looking for a silver, 2000 Chevrolet pickup truck with Indiana registration TK667LJB.
Investigators have reason to believe more than one person may occupy the truck.
Anyone who sees the truck should call 911 immediately and inform authorities of its location. Investigators warn not to approach the truck or its occupants as they are considered armed and dangerous.
