A Maine man was shot and killed early Saturday morning in an apparent road rage incident along Interstate 81 near Greencastle, Pa., according to the Pennsylvania State Police.

The victim, Timothy Davison, 28, of Poland, Maine, had worked for about five years as a pipefitter at Engineered Construction Services in Raymond, a company owned by his father, Tim Davison, and Bob Bent, Bent said Saturday afternoon.

Davison described the attack to 911 operators before dying from his wounds, state police said.

The incident took place just after 2 a.m. along the southbound lanes of the interstate near Exit 3, the exit for Route 11 in Antrim Township.

Davison called 911 while he was traveling north along I-81 and told operators he was being followed by a Ford Ranger-style truck and that one of the occupants of the truck was firing a weapon at him, state police.

The suspect then rammed Davison’s vehicle, forcing him into the median near the southbound lanes of the interstate, police said. After Davison’s vehicle became disabled, the suspect approached him and fired several rounds into the vehicle, police said.

Davison later died from his injuries at York Hospital. No arrests have been made yet in the shooting, police said.

Pennsylvania State Trooper Jeff Bopp said Saturday that police have not determined whether the shooting is related to another apparent road rage incident on Friday in Monaghan Township, about 60 miles northeast of Greencastle.

T he Patriot News of central Pennsylvania reported that shots were fired into a truck from close range at about 7 p.m. Friday. A black Nissan reportedly pulled up alongside the victim’s pickup truck and the occupant opened fire, narrowly missing the victim’s head.
