A woman was shot while driving across the Williamsburg Bridge in New York City Saturday night. Around 11pm on Saturday night, a shooting occurred on the bridge connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan.

"As the vehicle was traveling on the approach to the westbound entrance of the Williamsburg Bridge they heard a gunshot," the New York City Police Department said in a statement to Fox News Digital. "The 21-year-old female then realized that she sustained a graze wound to the back of her neck."

"A preliminary investigation determined that a bullet struck the vehicle in the rear passenger door on the driver's side, narrowly missed the 4-year-old female in the rear passenger seat, and struck the headrest to the front passenger seat," the statement added.

When the shooting happened, the vehicle the woman was in was making a lane change in front of a "dark colored 4 door sedan." A photo of the car was released here.

The woman was taken to the hospital by her husband and is getting treatment for the injury. An investigation is happening now, but they have yet to find a motive for the shooting.
