After a man was shot, his car stopped in the middle lane where it was hit by another car. That driver got out and was struck by a tractor-trailer.

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — A bizarre shooting incident Sunday night along a busy interstate left two people dead after a crash where another driver was then hit by a truck. 

Just after 10 p.m., the DeKalb County Police Department was called to an accident on I-20 eastbound, just west of Panola Road.

The man who was found shot in his vehicle died at the hospital, police said.

No suspects have been identified in the shooting, according to police.
