Woman carjacked after trying to help crash victims

- Deputies are actively searching for three suspects who allegedly carjacked a woman who had stopped to help those involved in a crash.

Volusia County Sheriff's Office released they are searching for a dark blue Ford Mustang convertible that was stolen Saturday morning during a carjacking along I-4 near Daytona Beach. The Mustang is a 2012 convertible with a Florida tag V83-4QC. It is described as having a black vinyl top, a spoiler and no window tint.

The incident happened around 5:40 a.m. at mile marker 128 on I-4 westbound.

The victim, 34-year-old woman, told deputies she drove up to the scene of a crash and stopped to assist those involved.

Three young men jumped out of the vehicle that was involved in the crash and stole hers.

The three suspects apparently also loaded an unresponsive female into the victim's car before driving away westbound, according to deputies.

The suspects are described as three black males in the teens or early 20s. One is described as being heavy-set wearing striped shirt and jeans. The two others were described as being thin.

The unresponsive female is believed to be in her teens or early 20s, with short dreadlocks, a red hooded sweatshirt, brown jeans and black shoes. Deputies said she was bleeding from the head.

The three suspects are wanted by the Volusia County Sheriff's Office on charges of carjacking.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the initial crash.

Deputies ask that if anyone spots the vehicle or the suspects to call 911. Do not approach the suspects.
