A brazen attempt to steal a car at a gas station in Michigan was caught on camera.

It happened around 2 p.m. Thursday. A woman was pumping gas when a man strolls calmly to her car.

He gets into the driver seat and tries to take off.

However, the woman jumps into the passenger seat and begins fighting with him.

That's not all though.

The driver of a fuel truck at the gas station jumped into action.

The truck driver can be seen wrestling with the thief before the man is able to escape and run away.


Neither the woman or the truck driver were injured.

It's a good reminder to always lock your car, even when pumping gas.
