MIAMI COUNTY — A semi truck driver from Kentucky will serve 30 months in prison for shooting at another semi on I-75 on Dec. 8.
Harold Baker, 51, of Kentucky, was charged with felonious assault and improper handling in a motor vehicle.
The road rage incident happened on I-75 South near the Tipp City exit. Police say Baker, who’s a commercial truck driver, fired a bullet into the cab of another truck. Baker said the truck had “too many lights and was blinding everyone,” according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol report. Baker said the driver of the Volvo truck was trying to run him off the road which led to Baker to roll down the passenger side window and fired one shot at the driver’s side door of the semi.
Judge Jeannine Pratt sentenced Baker to serve 30 months for the third degree attempted felony assault charge and one year for the improper firing of a gun inside a motor vehicle. The sentences will run concurrently.
