TULSA, Oklahoma -- A driver is in a hospital after he was shot in the leg in what he says was a road rage incident on a Tulsa highway early Tuesday.

The driver told Tulsa Police someone in an SUV pulled up next to him on I-244 near U.S. Highway 75 and fired a gun, with the bullet coming through his passenger's side door and hitting him in the leg.

The incident occurred just after midnight.

The driver said he thinks the shooter may have been upset at him because of his pickup truck's headlights.

Police say the victim is expected to be okay.  They're still searching for the other driver.
