I-81 shooting victim’s father struggles with questions

“Timothy Davison’s father is haunted by questions about his son’s road-rage death Saturday in Franklin County, while he was traveling from Florida back home to Maine.

“Davison was driving north on Interstate 81 early Saturday morning when he was fatally shot by an unidentified driver just after crossing from Maryland into Pennsylvania, according to Pennsylvania State Police, Chambersburg. While investigators are still quiet on many of the details about the incident, Davison’s father spoke about his son and the tragedy…

“The shooting is scary for many local residents for the same reason Davison has questions: This incident has been ruled “random.”

“Jose Ucles of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said while a shooting like this is an extreme situation, there are ways to protect yourself from aggressive drivers.

“According to a pamphlet from his organization, it’s important to avoid eye contact with an aggressive driver, and do everything in your power to get out of his or her way.

“Ignoring gestures and not engaging them is important, as is contacting police to report the driver, as Davison did.

“The main thing is, drive away,” Ucles said. “Don’t try to reason with unreasonable people.”

“And while in cases like Saturday’s shooting, it’s unclear what provoked the shooter, doing everything you can to avoid an aggressive driver is always the best course of action.

“”If you see somebody being aggressive, don’t try to show that they’re doing wrong,” Ucles said. “Just back off.”
