Clayton Mayor's Car Hit by Bullet During Violent Hit-and-Run (WATCH TRAFFIC CAMERA VIDEO

CLAYTON -- Clayton police tell us Mayor Joyce Dietering's car was hit by a bullet during a case of "road rage" Tuesday night.

The crash happened on N. Main Street near Heathcliff around 9 p.m.

Police tell us an innocent white four-door vehicle was hit by a black SUV trying to get away from several other vehicles that boxed them in.

"They were boxed in with three or four cars. Those vehicles were chasing them not allowing them to get out of the lane," said Richard Rose, Director of Public Safety. 

A suburban that was involved in the crash on N. Main St. took off, but a short time later was pursued by the police chief who was in an unmarked car.

"The vehicle had blacked out its lights and there was heavy smoke on the road with very little light. So, the vehicle was lost somewhere in that area," said Rose.

While the Chief of Police pursued that car, the victims of the road rage incident got out of the cars and started running.

Moments later, an unidentified vehicle pulled up and shot at them multiple times.

Police say the passenger, Kevin Florence Junior, of Dayton was shot in the hand. He was able to get in a passerby's car to be driven to the hospital.

During the shooting, Clayton Mayor Joyce Deitering was leaving her office, her car was struck at least once by a bullet.

The "road rage" incident is believed to have started around Philadelphia and Main Street in Harrison Township.

Video of the crash was caught on an Englewood traffic camera; click on the video to watch.

Police have not identified any suspects.
