A Chicago woman resisting a carjacking attempt by teenage assailants killed one and left another in critical condition.
Chicago Police reported that the woman, 35 years old, was sitting in her car at Wabash Avenue and Lake Street intersection during rush hour. Two men approached the vehicle and got into it just before 5:45.
The carjacking attempt was resisted by the woman, and she got into an altercation between the two suspects. The male suspect climbed behind the driver’s seat and drove the Infiniti FX35 into the support pillar at high speed. Chicago firefighters managed to rescue the victim and two suspects from the car.
One of the suspects was an 18-year old male who died at a hospital from his injuries. The other suspect was a 17-year old female who sustained severe injuries and was taken to Northwestern Hospital.
Stroger Hospital had also placed the victim in critical health.
Courtney Gordon, a witness who lived nearby, shared his experiences with WFLD-TV.
“Somebody just jumped out of the car and said they were still in it and the lady was shouting, trying get people to get the cops. They did CPR, however, the car was stolen by someone else.
