Shocking moment woman rides her own car bonnet down freeway

Updated: 

This is the moment a woman ended up on the bonnet of her own car as it was stolen.

Chantel Thompson had a fiery argument with her ex-boyfriend who then proceeded to steal her Chevy Impala.


Not wanting him to get away, Thompson leapt onto the bonnet, hoping to stop him from driving away. However, this did not deter him and he continued anyway.

With Thompson now perched on the bonnet, a motorist caught the terrifying moment on camera as they drove along the freeway in Houston, Texas.

Thompson spoke with news channel KTRK, saying: "I was scared a little bit because I'm like, if he throws on the brakes, I'm going to fly off this car.

"I'm not going to go out without no fight because I work too hard for my things. I'm a single mother and I do this by myself.

"At the end of the day, whether he's my kid's father or not, he stole from me."

The ordeal may have been only seconds on camera but Thompson's ex drove for more than a mile with her on the car.

Houston police department were called to the scene but let them both go. Charges are not expected to be filed.
