Investigators from the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office recovered a vehicle last night that was allegedly stolen in a Brookwood carjacking early Thursday morning.
The white Chevrolet Camaro was reportedly stolen after a 4-door light green or blue Hyundai or Honda rear-ended the vehicle around Exit 86 on I-20/59 between 3:30 and 4 a.m.
As originally reported by 95.3 The Bear, the suspects are alleged to have pointed a gun at the driver before driving away in the white car.
The driver of the vehicle was not injured.
Sergeant Josh Hastings said there are many things people can do to avoid crimes like this one if they find themselves in a similar situation.
“Remain in your car, keep the doors locked, obviously, contact law enforcement and stay there until we arrive.”
If the other driver approaches you from behind, do not exit your vehicle. Tell them, with the windows rolled up, you are waiting for the police to arrive.
The Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division is still investigating the incident.
