A Texas grandma, identified as Shirlene Hernandez, has reacted to the death of a carjacker who savagely beat her up then stole her car.

The 72-year-old woman had stopped at a petrol station to buy a drink in San Antonio, Texas, when the car thief attacked her and forcefully collected her car keys, and slammed her face with the car door.

People at the gas station tried to intervene and stop the assailant but he managed to drive off with the stolen car.

Following the incident, police reported that the carjacker had a terrible accident while driving off on the nearby interstate and died on the spot.

 Woman says

Reacting to news of his death in an interview with a local news outlet, WCAX3, Shirlene said she doesn’t believe he died because of “Karma” as she doesn’t believe it exists.

She however opined that he passed away in such a tragic way because God saw it fit to take him out of his misery.

Her words,

“There’s a lot of people who would say what goes around comes around, karma. I did not think that.

“The only thing I got [was] really sad because he had died. Now granted… he had hurt me, but the Lord saw fit to take him out of his misery.”

She added that she was thankful that people stepped in to help her at the petrol station and added, “I just hope that if this situation happens to anybody else, that somebody will step forward, leap forward, run forward, whatever and help the person that it’s happening to.”
