A 20-year-old University of North Texas student crashed into an electrical pole in Denton early Friday morning after being shot in the head in an apparent road rage incident.

The student was driving with three passengers when a dark-colored Toyota or Lexus SUV pulled up next to her car just after 2:00 a.m., according to WFAA. The occupants of the two vehicles exchanged words, and someone from inside the SUV opened fire on the sedan, striking the driver in the head.

The sedan crashed into another car before hitting an electrical pole. The SUV fled the scene.

The driver is at Denton Regional Medical Center in critical condition. One of the passengers was also transported to the hospital, but has been treated and released.
