Brandon passenger shot, injured in possible road rage

TAMPA — A man shot and injured the passenger of a pickup truck during evening rush hour Monday in a possible act of road rage, authorities said.

Kristen Craig, 45, was driving a Ford F150 east on Causeway Boulevard with a passenger, William Seago, 45. Both are of Brandon.

Just after 6 p.m., Craig stopped at a traffic light at U.S. 301 when a man driving a sport utility vehicle got out and came up to the passenger side of the truck.

The man fired a gun twice, hitting Seago in the leg, arm and chest, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. Seago was taken to Tampa General Hospital with what the Sheriff's Office said were non-life-threatening injuries.

The shooter got back into his SUV and drove south on U.S. 301.

Craig told investigators she may have cut the other driver off.

Deputies asked that anyone with information about the shooting call the Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477).
