A woman was struck by her own stolen car Sunday after she confronted a man driving it on Seymour Avenue in Ohio City.

The 24-year-old woman suffered a laceration on her left knee and a swollen left hand when she was struck by her stolen car after trying to get the person behind the wheel to stop, police said.

A witness who lives in the 3000 block of Seymour Avenue said the woman was on the hood of the vehicle kicking and screaming before she was thrown off the hood, causing her to land in the middle of the street.

The 24-year-old woman said the man who was in her car was not the same man who stole her car, police said.

Police said the 24-year-old saw her stolen vehicle head towards West 25th Street and the highway. 

Police searched the area but the vehicle was not located.
