A Florida woman who stopped to help car accident victims got the surprise of her life when three men involved in the crash carjacked her convertible. WFLA News reports that the 34-year-old woman spotted the crash on an interstate near Daytona Beach. When she pulled over to assist, three young men believed to be in their teens or early 20s jumped out of their car, which was involved in the crash, and stole her dark blue 2012 Ford Mustang convertible. The suspects are said to have transported an unresponsive woman who was bleeding from her head into the woman's stolen car before driving away.

According to Fox 35, the suspects were described as two thin African-American males and one heavy-set African-American male dressed in a striped shirt and jeans. The unresponsive female is also believed to be in her teens or early 20s and was described as having short dreadlocks, wearing a red hoodie, brown jeans, and black shoes. The initial crash is being investigated by Florida Highway Patrol. Deputies say the car involved in that crash was also reported stolen, and ask that anyone with information call 911, but say not to approach the suspects. (More car accident stories.)
