    A local woman took road-rage to a new level when she slashed the face of an unsuspecting motorist and then chased her all the way to the police station -- all with her four-year-old daughter in the car.

    A 39-year-old man was shot to death as he drove his bread delivery truck in Brooklyn.

    The New York Police Department says Jorge Martinez was fatally wounded by a gunshot to the head late Friday night as he drove his bread route along Avenue X.

    Two bullets hit the van and one struck Martinez, who then lost control of the van and crashed. He died en route to the hospital of the gunshot wound.

    Police said in a statement early Sunday that they suspect stray gunfire struck Martinez and don't think he was targeted. No arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation.

    The New York Post reported that Martinez was a father of two who lived in the Elmhurst section of Queens.
