MANHATTAN – A Manhattan woman is recovering this week after she found herself being fired on while driving down Interstate 57 near 147th Street last Friday.

According to Illinois State Police reports, it happened at 11:20 pm last Friday when the 42-year-old woman was driving on I-57 and found her vehicle under attack. The woman flagged down a nearby Illinois State Police officer after the incident to report it.
