She then heard a loud pop that she thought was a gunshot and drove to the nearest police station. According to a criminal complaint, the driver followed her and at one point, shot at her.

She was able to take a photo of the truck and police matched it to its owner, 28-year-old Joseph Turner. A warrant was issued for his arrest after she positively identified him.
