Teen Crashes Car to Ward Off Unbelted Carjacker

An Iowa teen intentionally swerved his car into oncoming traffic to escape a carjacker who was holding him at gunpoint. The carjacker had grown angry after making the teen drive to two ATMs, neither of which met the carjacker's standards. He threatened to kill the boy.

The young man, after realizing that he was wearing a seatbelt and the carjacker wasn't, decided to crash his car into an oncoming SUV. The driver of the SUV was not injured, but the carjacker was knocked unconscious and arrested at the scene.
