Authorities in Chester County, Pennsylvania, are appealing to the public for information leading to the arrest of the alleged killer of Bianca Roberson, an 18-year-old girl who was died during an apparent incident of road rage on Wednesday. Police are seeking information about the driver of a red pickup truck that was associated with the fatal incident.
Roberson recently graduated Bayard Rustin High School and had plans to attend Jacksonville University in Florida this fall. Rodney Roberson, her father, told 6ABC News “She was good girl, an honor roll student, looking forward to going to college.” A $5,000 reward is also being offered in the case.
Chester County District Attorney Thomas P. Hogan called the shooting “a totally random, senseless act of violence.” Roberson was shot in the head by another driver while the two were merging into a single lane on the Route 100 bypass in West Goshen. According to witnesses, the male driver of a red pickup truck was attempting to merge into the same lane as Roberson. He showed a gun and then shot her. Roberson’s car then went off the road at approximately 5:30 p.m. and crashed.
The male shooter then drove on Route 202 and down the shoulder to Paoli Pike. There he went out of sight. He is described as a white male with a medium build and blond or light-brown hair, 30 to 40 years of age. The red pickup may be a Chevrolet model. Police are reviewing surveillance video recorded by Pennsylvania Department of Transportation cameras and businesses on Paoli Pike.
Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or the West Goshen Township Police Department at 610-696-7400.
