Three women injured after shots fired, car flips

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The northbound lanes of Lamar Avenue between Raines and Perkins were blocked for hours as detectives investigated a shooting and crash Monday morning.

Police said three women were driving down the street in a yellow Chevrolet Mustang when  a dark-colored Infiniti with tinted windows pulled up beside them.

As the driver of the Mustang turned around to get away, the suspect opened fire hitting her.

She veered into northbound traffic, hit a wall and overturned.

Hours after the crash, drivers were still being detoured around the area.

"I`m kind of shocked about it, but here lately all I have been seeing on the news is you know, people getting shot," said driver Tommy May.

All three women inside the car were injured but are expected to be okay.
