This is the shocking moment a young mum was ambushed by a carjacker as she de-iced her Mini Cooper – and was dragged 30 FEET before being run over.
Nikki Law-Priddey, 30, left the engine running and the driver’s door open while she prepared to scrape the ice off the windows.
Moments later, a man in a baseball cap sprinted towards the £16,000 car and jumped into the driver’s seat before speeding off with Nikki desperately hanging onto the door.
The terrifying carjacking, which took place at 12pm last Thursday, outside her home in Kitwell Lane, Bartley Green, Birmingham, was captured on CCTV.
The 1.18-minute clip shows business developer Nikki being dragged 30ft under her car as it careered off her driveway and into the road before leaving her for dead.
Shockingly, the carjacker is then captured on camera speeding back past Nikki as passers-by come to her aid.
Nikki yesterday released the footage of the attack on her Facebook page in a bid to track down the “scum” responsible and urged drivers to be vigilant when de-icing their cars.
She said: “These past 24 hours have been the worst time of my life, to say I am in total shock and disbelief to what has happened to me on my own doorstep in broad day light is a understatement,
“Carjacking is on the rise. Do not leave your car running to de-ice it, scum like this wait for people just like me to make this mistake.
“When u get in the car lock the doors and stay safe
“Never in a million years did I think this would happen to me especially in broad daylight on my own drive.”
Nikki – who was left with a broken hand and bruising to her legs and back – also revealed her car had been recovered by officers who found it with false plates.
She added: “My car has been recovered by the police and is in forensics.
“I know these scum bags talk and he would have tried to sell this car, when it was found false plates were on it.”
Her sister Becky said Nikki had been left traumatised by the carjacking and is lucky to be alive.
She added: “She was dragged under the car and out in the road by this person.
“She is very lucky that she was not even more seriously injured, or killed.
“We have been circulating pictures of the car in the hope that the person who took it can be found.
“After seeing footage of her being dragged along the ground under the wheels of her car I can’t believe she’s actually alive. All our trips to church paid off.”
West Midlands Police are hunting the carjacker.
A force spokesman said: “The 30-year-old victim was left with a fractured finger and bruising to her back and legs after attempting to prevent the car from being stolen.
“Anyone with information on either incident can call officers on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
