CUPERTINO — Authorities say traffic on a San Francisco Bay area highway is open again after a vehicle driven by a U.S. Marine was apparently struck by gunfire.
Southbound lanes on Highway 85 in Cupertino near De Anza Boulevard reopened around 3 p.m. Wednesday after being shut down for about an hour.
Marine Sgt. Robert Durham told KGO-TV that a fellow sergeant was traveling southbound on the highway when his government vehicle was hit by bullets shortly after 12:30 p.m.
Durham said the sergeant pulled over to the side of the road to call police.
Authorities closed part of the highway to investigate the scene and search for suspects as the car's window appeared to be shot out.
The northbound lanes were not affected.
No injuries have been reported.
