Woman stops to help crash victims and they steal her car

Updated:

HONOLULU (AP) — A woman who stopped to help after a crash on a Honolulu freeway says two men involved in the wreck stole her car, leaving behind an injured passenger.

Jennifer Jones says she was driving on the H-1 freeway Sunday when she saw a sport utility vehicle swerve and crash into a median.

Jones says she saw two men in the SUV, along with a bloodied woman hanging out of the passenger seat. Jones says that while she was trying to help the woman, the two men took off in her Mazda Miata.

Police arrived and told Jones that the SUV had been reported stolen earlier. Jones' phone helped locate her car about a mile away.

Hawaii News Now reports police arrested a 22-year-old man but are still looking for the other man who ditched the injured woman and used the Miata as a getaway car.

KHON-TV reports the woman was treated at a hospital.
