Car flips over trying to avoid road rage shooting

A couple in a black Lexus were driving early Sunday morning in Reno, Nevada. According to reports, the driver told police they were being followed by a car that was driving erratically. When the car tried to pass them, the driver of the Lexus sped up to prevent it. The couple in the Lexus then heard several gun shots coming from the other vehicle. The driver of the Lexus leaned over to avoid being shot and in the process swerved towards the curb, hit a parked pick-up truck, and flipped the Lexus on its side.
The couple was able to get out of the vehicle unharmed, although they were taken to the local hospital for treatment for minor abrasions.
Police are still looking for the dark sedan involved in the incident.
