LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Louisville police are questioning a driver whose car was riddled with bullet holes after an incident in which another driver was killed when his vehicle hit a tree.

The Courier-Journal reports police said the driver of a Dodge Charger died Tuesday afternoon after an apparent road rage incident south of downtown near Churchill Downs.

Police said the men were chasing each other when the Dodge hit a tree, killing the driver. Police said they believe the driver who died shot at the other vehicle, a Chrysler 300. The driver of the Chrysler was being questioned.

Media reported surveillance footage from a nearby liquor store showed the two men encountered each other there just before the chase and crash but there was no noticeable exchange.
