(Newser) – Police are searching for a man who killed a Texas woman in an apparent road-rage shooting in Arlington on Wednesday. Police say Brittany Daniel, 26, was shot while driving on Interstate 30 about 7pm, reports the Dallas Morning News. Daniel's father tells WFAA that his daughter was dropping off coworkers from her housekeeping job when a car began swerving around her. A passenger in Daniel's vehicle says a male passenger in a small car with tinted windows then opened fire.

It isn't clear whether Daniel had any interaction with those in the other vehicle before she was shot, but her father says she would likely speak up in such a situation. Police describe the shooter as "a light-skinned black or Hispanic male with dark hair, possibly in his mid-20s," per WFAA. The incident marks the second road-rage-related death of a young Texas woman in the past month. On New Year's Eve, a 20-year-old University of North Texas student was shot and killed while driving in Denton. A 20-year-old US Marine has been arrested in that case. (Read more road rage stories.)
