Texas authorities said a man who was killed in a car crash last Tuesday had stolen the vehicle from an elderly woman

Shirlene Hernandez, 72, was reportedly carjacked as she headed into a Shell gas station in San Antonio. The assailant grabbed Hernandez, hit her in the face several times, and fled with her car despite three men trying to tackle him, according to WOAI.

Shortly after the apparent carjacking, police officers found Hernandez’s vehicle totaled on Interstate 35 in Somerset. The suspected carjacker was dead inside the vehicle, according to reports.

Hernandez suffered facial bruising but she is expected to recover. However, a GoFundMe page for the grandmother stated that the ordeal has left her without her car which she uses for work.

“I just don’t want to quit working and so I’ve got to somehow get another car and that takes money and stuff,” Hernandez told WOAI. “I’ve got to figure out what to do.”
