That was a close call. Good thing she has wit and was strong enough to take down the carjacker. In any case, I guess its good to take lessons on how to defend yourself.


@Tim: Well, her name's not "Sarah." It doesn't sound like this guy was playing with a full deck.

How many carjackers call their victims by their first names? Perhaps she has personalized plates on her car. If he has hold of her left arm and is trying to get behind the wheel, how does she knock him down with the passemger door? Story is "interesting." Glad she is OK.

On Tuesday night, when the temperature was 48, Melissa Kingston in her convertible with the top down got carjacked as she was coming/going to a liquor store. She beat the tar out of the armed man (in self defense of course--evidenced by kicking him in the face and stomach). She then left the scene, drove home, calling the police 30 minutes later to report the crime. OK.
