MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — What appeared to be just a simple fender bender in Mobile turned into a scary encounter with a carjacker.

A woman told Mobile Police she was hit from behind by a tan Chevy Malibu near Cottage Hill Road and Sage Avenue early Wednesday morning.

The woman told police she got out to see the damage, and that's when a man in the Malibu got out, put a gun to her head, and demanded her and a passenger's phones.

The woman says she and the passenger ran away, as the man fired a shot. The victim says the man then drove off in her vehicle, while a woman he was with drove away in the Malibu.

Police say no injuries were reported.
