Deputies probe report of shots fired at trucks
ELLERY -- Four truck drivers reported that their vehicles were shot at on I-86 in Chautauqua County late Thursday night, prompting authorities to close a section of the eastbound highway in the Town of Ellery for about two hours overnight.
Further inspection revealed that two of the trucks had been struck in the windshield, another had minor damage to an air deflector over the truck cab, and the fourth had no visible damage.
Chautauqua County sheriff's deputies, working with the Ellicott Police Department and state police, closed the eastbound lanes and conducted a thorough search of the area but found no evidence of the shooter.
All four drivers were from out of the area and were employed by different trucking companies, sheriff's officials said.
