A man fired more than a dozen rounds of ammo in an alleged road rage incident Tuesday afternoon on Interstate 95 -- with his 2-year-old daughter in his car, according to Virginia State Police.

Investigators said the incident started when a dump truck merged onto southbound I-95 from Route 123 in Prince William County at about 4 p.m. Police said the truck driver and the driver of a Jaguar engaged in aggressive driving. Police said the dump truck hit the Jaguar twice and both ended up against the shoulder wall.

Investigators said Gabriel Proventud, 25, of Woodbridge, Va., got out of the Jaguar and fired 13 shots, hitting the dump truck four times as it drove away. Poventud followed, but both were pulled over by police.

Police said Poventud had his 2-year-old daughter in the Jaguar. He was charged with child endangerment, attempted homicide and weapons charges. The dump truck driver, James Bringham, 44, of Woodbridge, was charged with reckless driving.

In spite of all the aggressive driving, crashing and shooting, no injuries reported.
