The saleswoman leapt onto the fetish mask of the moving car, banging her forearms on the windshield. She stayed planted there as the thief drove toward the street, stuffing on the brakes and turning on the windshield wipers in an attempt to throw her off.
Ms Smith said she could hear him laughing from inwards the car.
The would-be carjacker eventually hopped out of the vehicle, grabbing Ms Smith’s purse and phone as he left. The youthfull woman then chased her still-moving car into the street, hopping into the driver’s seat before it could hit anyone.
“It isn’t the smartest and safest thing,” Ms Smith admitted, “but I just went with my instinct.”
