Maryland Transportation Authority Police are investigating the apparent shooting of a dump truck's windshield as it traveled along the Intercounty Connector on Tuesday afternoon, the agency said.

Two men in the truck were transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, including from shattered glass, said Lt. Kevin Ayd, a MdTA Police spokesman.

Neither man had bullet wounds, though one came close, Ayd said.

"What's believed to be a bullet penetrated through the window of the truck and then got lodged into one of the subjects in the vehicle's clothing," Ayd said.

The incident occurred shortly before 3 p.m. as the truck was traveling eastbound on the ICC, also known as Route 200, in between Interstate 95 and Route 29, in the Washington suburbs, Ayd said.

The shooting appeared to come from a nearby wooded area, not from another vehicle on the road, Ayd said. The truck driver was able to stop the truck without crashing, Ayd said.

Ayd said he could not confirm if the windshield was pierced once or more than once.

"We're going to wait until our detectives do their investigation," he said. "They're obviously out there canvassing the area for additional clues."
