MARKHAM, Ill. -- At 9 a.m. Monday on 294 in south suburban Markham, someone shot at a vehicle that had a baby in the backseat. Police are calling it a road rage incident.

There were two cars involved: a Red Chevy Impala and a minivan. Police say the driver of the Impala was traveling northbound on 294 at 159th Street (Plaza 41) when this person got into an altercation with the driver of the minivan.

Things escalated, and two shots were fired into the Impala, striking the driver.

Authorities are not identifying the victim, who they say made it to a toll plaza and called police.

The driver was treated for non-life threatening injuries at Advocate Christ Hospital.

As for the child who was in the backseat, police say the child was apparently not injured.

State troopers responded to the shooting and closed two lanes on the Tri-State Tollway just south of 159th while they looked for shell casings.

The investigation is ongoing.

If authorities know the make and model of the minivan, they're not saying. But Illinois State Police are asking people with information about this shooting to give them a call.
