ORLANDO, Fla. —

An innocent man is recovering after bullets came flying through his car when he was driving home from work.

Police said the man was sitting in his car at the intersection of Marks Street and Hampton Avenue Sunday, when bullets came flying through his windshield.

He was hit, but is expected to recover from his injuries.

Two rounds went through the side window, then the driver's headrest and eventually through the front windshield.

"I remember seeing three flashes of light and I'm thinking someone is setting off fireworks, then all of a sudden I felt a sharp pain in my jaw," said the victim.

The victim said he was driving his car when a stranger unloaded round after round on him.

"Two days before Christmas…I remember thinking I didn't get a chance to say goodbye to anyone," the victim said.

The driver said he was headed home from work, on a route he traveled every night.

He said when he approached the stop sign at the intersection of Marks Street and Hampton Avenue, he spotted a truck at the other corner. He said the other driver turned off his lights and he heard gunfire.

One shot hit his shoulder and jaw and missed his brain by inches.

"The rear glass shattered and I grabbed my jaw and floored it and drove myself to the hospital," said the victim.

Orlando police said they have no idea who the gunman is and neither does the victim.

"Chances are it's been done before and it will probably happen again," said the victim.
