A woman in Virginia was accused of walking away from the scene of a car crash before stealing a bystander’s car while his five children were still inside. She is facing several charges including five counts of second-degree kidnapping.
On October 3, Currituck County Deputies responded to a two-vehicle crash off the Caratoke Highway. Authorities said that’s when a witness pulled off the highway to assist the victims, including Markell Hancox of Chesapeake, Virginia.
According to reports, when the driver of the SUV got out to check on the person in the other vehicle, Hancox jumped into it. She did not realize that she took off with the man’s five small children in the back.
