Taylon Nichelle Celestine was charged with attempted murder over the shootings on Interstate 10 in Florida, according to the Associated Press.

It's understood the 22-year-old Georgia woman entered the highway armed with a rifle and handgun then began firing into a passing car several times, grazing the driver in the arm. 

She then fired at a second vehicle, hitting the driver in the neck. The driver was injured and treated at a hospital, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Celestine is being held at the Holmes County jail. 

She was charged with attempted murder, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and improper discharge of a firearm.
