York Region detectives are hunting three bandits who shot a truck driver in Vaughan early yesterday while hijacking his tobacco cargo.

 




The driver suffered a bullet wound to his ankle in the confrontation. He was later released from hospital after the bullet was removed.

 




The robbers left him bleeding on the pavement and drove his truck — loaded with more than $200,000 worth of cigarettes — to a parking lot, where they shifted the cargo to another truck.
