Woman Says 'Good Samaritan' Robbed Her After Car Crash
A woman says a man robbed her after offering to help her following a car crash.
Kimberly Smith was driving on Highway 114 in Irving, Texas when another vehicle cut her off, forcing her to swerve, according to reports. Her car flipped three times before it landed on its roof. Miraculously, she only suffered cuts and bruises.
Her brother posted about her ordeal on Facebook and shared photos of her crumpled car.
According to Smith, another motorist pulled over to help her seconds later as she crawled from the wreckage.
He helped her look for her phone and brought her her purse, she said. He then left her to run back to his car, saying he was going to look for his own phone. But when she looked for him, he had gone, she said. Another stranger then stopped and called 911.
"The police officer asked for my driver's license and insurance and that's when I realized my wallet was not in my purse," she said.
Police said the unidentified man had stolen her license, social security card and the $80 in her wallet.
Her brother wrote on Facebook: "All this happened after she was trapped upside down and NOBODY stopped to help her. What the hell is wrong with this world!?"
The man, who was driving a red pickup truck, has still not been identified. Joshua Smith appealed for help in his post.
"If anybody has a 'friend' that is bragging about robbing some girl after she flipped her car this morning, please be a real friend and let us know," he wrote. "Everyone please share this and maybe we can find this loser."
Kimberly Smith said she feels more sorry for the thief.
"I want people to find him and I also want people to know that it's important to stop and help people," Smith told WFAA. "To actually help people."
