ABC's Brandi Hitt has the story. 911 emergency. What are you reporting? Yeah I just got shot at eastbound 91 at harbor boulevard. Reporter: A desperate call for help in the middle of a car-to-car shooting. Are you hit? Yes, I'm hit. Reporter: The victim Kenneth baker merging on to a southern California freeway in broad daylight when his window suddenly exploded. Blast spraying his face. I noticed where the bullets hit on the side of my truck. It was inch as way from my head. I didn't know this man was trying to kill me. Reporter: Baker says he didn't recognize the shooter in the car next to him and decided to chase him down calling 911 with one arm while nursing gunshot wounds to the other. I think my arm is shot. I'm trying to catch up to him now. Okay, well, that's probably not the best idea if he's shooting at you. I'm, I'm right behind him now. Reporter: He says the two swerved in and out of traffic at speeds up to 95 miles per hour. Baker cutting across bushes and freeway exits to stay on his tail. Officers eventually taking over the pursuit and arresting 32-year-old jerry Valentin from Arizona. This could have been so much worse. It could have been much more of a tragedy.

Reporter: Valentin has pleaded guilty to four felonies including attempted murder in a Chaim that for now appears to be a random act of rage.
