CENTENNIAL, Colorado (KUSA) -- Zune Wharton tried to fight back when a crazed and desperate felon stole her car Wednesday.

She says was driving her silver sedan to work when she noticed a gold van behind her. She thought the driver was having mechanical problems when he hit her, but this was no ordinary accident.

"He said you have to get out now, Wharton remembers. "Of course, I got confused, and I am thinking 'what's going on?'"

The felon, identified by police as 28-year-old Ryan Stone, yanked her out of the car, onto the shoulder of the road.

"When he pulled me out, I realized, you know, he's jumping in my car he's going to take off," Wharton said. "Instinctually - I don't why - I tried to grab back on." In retrospect, Wharton says it was a bad idea to try to stop the carjacker, and she is lucky she was not injured.
