A security camera captured the wild moment a woman jumped onto the hood of her SUV to stop a carjacking.
28-year-old Melissa Smith was pumping gas in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, when two men drove up next to her and attempted to steal her car on Tuesday, May 25. The footage shows Smith leaping onto the hood of the car and slamming her fists on the windshield in a brave attempt to keep the thieves from getting away with her car.
The thief eventually gave up and fled, forcing Smith to jump into her moving vehicle and put on its brake before it crashed. All in all, it’s one of the most badass videos I’ve ever seen, and I’m slightly turned on by the non-literal balls on this chick.
Smith, who was at a BP gas station on St Paul’s Avenue in Milwaukee around 2:00 P.M. when the incident occurred, told Daily Mail she was checking emails, which prevented her from seeing the Cadillac approach.
“My first thought was ‘This is not happening to me today’ and I guess my first reaction was to jump on of the car. I just had zero thoughts about how they could hurt me,” she said.
According to police, the suspects are still at large, but police who arrived on the scene fingerprinted Smith’s car.
