VIRGINIA BEACH -- A man was shot in the face around 2:30am Tuesday while riding in an SUV along Interstate 264 in Virginia Beach.

His friends tried to rush him to the hospital and flipped the vehicle at the Witchduck Rd. exit.

The other passenger in the vehicle was injured in the crash, but the driver was unharmed.

According to police, the victim and two friends were leaving a club, heading toward 264 when another vehicle drove up beside them and fired several shots.

As the driver headed west on I-264, he realized that he was going the wrong way to the hospital and turned around on Witchduck Road.  He lost control driving up the on-ramp to I-264 East, smashing through the jersey wall and flipping the SUV.

The victim was taken to Virginia Beach General Hospital and is in stable condition.

Police are trying to find out who fired the shots.
