The Grady County Sheriff's Office is investigating an incident where a FedEx Freight driver was shot in the leg while driving.

The call came in around between 6 and 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Officials said the driver was traveling on State Route 111, South of Reno in a wooded stretch of road.

A bullet from a high powered rifle entered the passenger cabin and hit the driver in the leg.

Officials say this may be just a freak accident from someone hunting, but they are investigating to see who fired the shot.

The driver wasn't critically injured.
