A 12-year-old girl in Williamsburg, Virginia, is being praised for her bravery after stopping a carjacker from stealing her mom's vehicle.

Maddie Weiler had this to say about her heroic actions, "I just went for it, like nothing passed my mind except he's a psycho and he needs to get out of the car."

That's a very brave girl and hopefully her vacation is now better than ever; broken arm and all.
