Woman found shot on Route 78 ramp, police say
GREENWICH — A woman was found shot three timeson an entrance ramp to Route 78 on Tuesday morning.
State Police were notified about shots fired on the ramp at exit 6, which runs through a truck weigh station, just before 6 a.m., according to spokesman Alejandro Goez. The woman was found inside her vehicle with gunshot wounds to her head, hand and chest but conscious and was hospitalized.
The incident may started with an "incident" at exit 75 for Morgan Hill Road in Easton, Pennsylvania but did not reveal the nature of the incident, according to police. They say a male wearing dark clothing was at the scene before leaving in a dark colored sedan.
No arrests have yet been made in the incident, according to Goez. The woman was in stable condition late Tuesday afternoon. Goez said the woman is expected to survive.
Traffic on Route 78 eastbound was largely unaffected by the shooting. Volume was lighter because of the emergency order closing non-essential retailers and workplaces.
State Police asked anyone with information about the shooting to call their Perryville Station at 908-730-7042.
