The situation on I-390 near Chili Avenue Thursday was a frightening situation for anyone who drives that stretch of road. Despite what happened, there is still a lot of traffic on Interstate 390. But some people say, at least for now, they will not travel on this expressway.
People like Ajay Cubi would rather deal with the inconvenience of not using 390 than risk the possibility of being victimized by what could be someone firing at random vehicles.
Ajay Cubi, Gates resident, said, “That's right by my house, so that's where I get on every day to travel to the eastside, Greece, anywhere. Taking the city down Lyell, it is more traffic and lights. You have to wait it out. It’s just a pain. It is worth it to avoid getting shot at.”
Thursday’s incident involving a hospital laundry truck has created fear for local motorists. Many are vowing to avoid 390 at least for now. But one Gates resident refuses to give in to fear.
Drew Hill, Gates resident, said, “I don't know if it's random. It's the second time it's happened, so who knows. It could happen to anybody.”
Roshanda Streeter, of East Rochester, doesn't know what to think, but for now she says she won't be taking 390.
Roshanda Streeter, East Rochester resident, said, “I don't want to get hit by a stray bullet or my children. It's just crazy. There's some crazy people out here and it is scary because you can't be safe going anywhere anymore.”
Police have not confirmed it was a bullet that went through that truck window, but the investigation is far from over.
