As an Oakland woman was strapping her twins into their car seats, a man jumped into the front seat of the car and started to drive away. In that split second, she only thought of her children. The quick thinking Mom jumped into the back seat as the car sped off.
She knew her only chance was to get her hands on the keys in the ignition. She began fighting with the man. A struggle ensued. She was able to get her hands on the keys, pull them from the ignition, and press the panic button. As she screamed for help, the car swerved out of control and hit the median.
The carjacker fled from the scene. He stole her purse and some cash when he fled. The woman sustained minor bruises and her 4 year old twins were unharmed.
