A teenage honors student was tragically shot and killed in a road rage incident on Wednesday in Pennsylvania.
Bianca Nikol Roberson, 18, was shopping for college clothes with her mother and grandmother. On the way back from the mall in West Chester, she tried to merge into a lane, but so did a red pick-up truck. The man in truck pulled out a gun and shot her in the head, which killed her. Her car then veered off the road and crashed.
"They were jostling for a position or whatever. And unfortunately this gentleman took it to a degree that was just unconscionable," West Goshen Police Chief Joe Gleason told ABC 6. On the way home, Roberson's grandmother passed the crash and hoped it wasn't her granddaughter. It's a frightening thought.
"She's so young. And to go through something like that by herself.... She had to have been pretty scared," Roberson's brother, Dontae Alburg, told ABC 6.
In two weeks, she would have been in orientation at Jacksonville University in Florida. Roberson was on the honor roll at Bayard Rustin High School and wanted to one day solve cases for the FBI.
The driver is said to be a blond man between the ages of 30 and 40. He fled the scene after Roberson's car crashed on the side of the road, and now police in three states are searching for him—and believe he is armed and dangerous. If you witnessed the incident, you can contact the West Goshen Police Department Traffic Safety Division at 610-696-7400 with information. We're hoping Bianca gets justice for this atrocious crime.
