When he offered to help with a flashlight, they made a move to steal his car.
“Once inside the van, I heard my car rev and I thought, ‘This can’t happen,’ so I dove through the window,” Duncan told CBS2. “And, wham. I mean, I was still halfway out the window, hanging through the window in his lap, trying reach for brakes, trying to steer the car, trying to grab for the stick shift. Even when he hit, it was still in gear and he had his foot on the floor. I mean, it must have hit 6,000 RPMs,” he said.
He says the two men simply walked away from the crash and escaped.MORE NEWS: Manhattan Beach School Employee, Kevin Bandel, Arrested On Child Pornography Allegation
