ATLANTA – A woman said she was terrified when a man jumped out of her trunk and stole her car.
Nadine, who only wanted to be identified by her first name, said something was off when she and her daughter left their Decatur home Monday morning.
“The car felt different. It smelled. I said to her if I didn’t know better I would have thought someone drove my car,” she said.
Nadine went ahead, stopped for gas and then dropped her daughter off at school before continuing to work.
She said she ran into traffic on Estoria Street near the Krog Tunnel and that’s when she got a scary surprise.
“I was inching forward then all of a sudden somebody popped out. Somebody popped out of the back of my trunk (and said) ‘Get out of the car.’ I panicked. I didn’t know what to do,” she said.
With the car still running, Nadine said she fell out of the car.
