Woman’s daring move in highway carjacking

THREE men who crashed a stolen car into a truck have escaped after carjacking a woman who stopped to help them north of Brisbane.

The men were in a stolen black Kia hatchback that hit a truck on the Bruce Highway at Caboolture about 5.30am.

A woman who saw the crash stopped to help, but when she approached the men they demanded the keys to her car.

She refused to hand them over and threw them on to the highway, but one of the men made a risky dash onto the road to retrieve them.

They then sped off in the woman’s car, leaving her stranded on the side of the highway.

The men remain on the run in her Hyundai Santa Fe with Queensland registration 190 KEB.
