TOWSON, Md. — We're now hearing from one of the victims in Thursday's carjacking on I-83.

Maryland State Police say the suspect was initially driving a Honda Civic without authorization, when he got into a three car crash on the southbound side near Timonium Road in Baltimore County.

The suspect then allegedly flagged down a woman driving a Lexus and carjacked her.

Dr. Deborah Brittar said she saw the initial three car crash while driving. She rolled her window down to ask the suspect if he was okay.

That's when Brittar said he climbed into her car, causing her to lose control of the vehicle.

"By this point he was in the passenger I was able to step on the break, so I stopped the car and he then took the keys out of the ignition and he looked at me and said get out I thought I don't need to be told twice I opened the door and got out," Brittar said.

He then crashed Brittar's car at the 695 exit, carjacked another woman and then later crashed that vehicle near the Northern Parkway exit.

The suspect also attempted to carjack a third woman but someone passing by stepped in to help.

Brittar said police told her the man was just discharged from a Pennsylvania Prison on Wednesday.
