CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

A family driving through Virginia on Interstate 95 on Thursday morning believes someone shot out their car's window as they drove through Chesterfield, nearly striking the driver and her daughter.

The family had just finished a quick stop for fuel on their way from Florida to New York early Thursday when they got back on the interstate near Colonial Heights around 3:30 a.m. They were driving northbound in the left lane near the Woods Edge Road exit when they heard a loud boom. 

Glass came crashing down in the car, sending shards into the mother's eye and coating the floor mats. After pulling over and inspecting the car, the family believes it was a bullet which broke the windows, grazed the interior and nearly struck both mother and daughter.

Virginia State Police are now investigating and looking for a possible suspect or the bullet to confirm the family's account.
