A daring carjacker entered a running vehicle gassing up while three young women were still inside after attending a wedding.
The mother of one of the girls spoke to YidInfo about her daughter’s harrowing experience with the carjacker, would-be-kidnapper saying, “He was totally cursing them out the whole time they were in the car with him. They started screaming as soon as he got inside, so he locked them in. Who knows what kind of plans he had for them! While they were screaming in the back seat, my daughter put her hand in the front seat and unlocked the door, so they were all able to get out.”
As the three fled the confines of the 2022 Honda Odyssey, the thief took off with the car, narrowly missing running them down as he sped away.
The keys were not in the vehicle, which means that as soon as the driver turns the car off, he will not be able to turn it back on again.
