Driver charged after firing gunshots at vehicle leading to crash on I-476: officials

A terrifying turn of events on I-476 in Delaware County Friday afternoon as a shooting on the highway led to two vehicles crashing, one with a child inside, and a driver charged.

The scenario played out Friday, around 12:30 in the afternoon, officials said, on the northbound side of the highway, in Radnor Township.

Pennsylvania State Police determined 62-year-old Christopher Foley, of Wayne, was driving a Honda Civic and fired gunshots at another man’s vehicle, who had his 8-year-old son in the back seat, while they were driving on the highway.

As a result of the shooting, the vehicles crashed into each other. Because of the crash, the Honda was then disabled on the embankment.

As first responders arrived, they found the victims unharmed in their vehicle, while Foley was taken to Paoli Hospital for treatment of his injuries, which authorities said were minor and not life-threatening.

Foley has since been charged with two counts of attempted homicide, three counts of aggravated assault and other related charges.

In a preliminary arraignment, bail was set at $1 million. Foley did not post bail and is being held at Delaware County Prison awaiting a hearing.

The highway was shutdown for a few hours for an investigation.
