A father seeking justice for his nine-year-old daughter, a victim of a gun wound from road rage, has turned to social media to look for the gunman. The Facebook post, which was made public by a friend of the father, includes a narration of the incident and snapshots of the gunman's vehicle from a CCTV camera. The vehicle is a white Hyundai Santa Fe, shown above.
According to the social media post, the road-rage incident happened at around 4:00am on December 6, 2013. The victim, a nine-year-old girl, and her sister were being chauffeured by their father and accompanied by their mother to school for a field trip.
"I was traveling along a narrow road on M.H. Del Pilar St., Brgy. Bungad, Quezon City, when I came across this white Hyundai SUV with its very bright headlight directly blinding my sight," the post narrated. "So, when the driver of the said SUV and I met side by side, I brought my window down and he did so, too."
The victim's father then asked the Hyundai Santa Fe driver to dim his lights. Little did he know that the simple request would endanger his entire family. As he slightly drove forward while looking in his side-view mirror to get the other motorist's plate number, three gunshots were fired. One bullet hit his younger daughter, damaging her kidney and liver.
The white SUV, driven by a dangerous motorist carrying a gun, was on its way to exit to Roosevelt Avenue in Barangay San Antonio. "I am now asking everyone to please help us find this guy and let justice rule," the post pleaded. Anyone with information about the driver and the vehicle is welcome to contact (0928) 113-1893.
Help your fellow motorist seek justice and make the roads safer by reporting irresponsible gun owners. You wouldn't want to share the road with a gunman with a bad temper.
