ST. LOUIS — A man was shot Saturday morning after a man crashed into his vehicle on Interstate 70 at Saint Louis Avenue. 

The 53-year-old man told St. Louis police that he was driving east on I-70 shortly after 11:30 Saturday morning when his vehicle was hit by a white Nissan Pathfinder. 

The victim motioned to the driver of the Pathfinder to pull off to the shoulder of the interstate, when the suspect pulled out a handgun and fire several shots at the victim's vehicle. The victim was struck in the neck by gunfire that also shattered the passenger-side window.

Police said the suspect continued driving east across the Stan Musial Bridge. 

The victim drove south on Tucker in search of help. 

EMS then located the victim and took him to a local hospital where he was listed with stable vitals on Sunday afternoon.

St. Louis police are still investigating the shooting.
