ST. LOUIS – A woman who was involved in an accident ended up being carjacked in north St. Louis Thursday night.

The 44-year-old woman got off the exit ramp at Riverview off eastbound I-270, approached the stop sign and a car crashed into her from behind. She believed she was involved in an accident, so she pulled to the side of the road. Two men wearing all black came up to her with guns.

She feared for her safety and got out of her Jeep and ran to a nearby business. The two men got away with her Jeep, with her purse inside.
