Video Captures 11-Year-Old Escape During Carjacking

Shocking surveillance footage shows the moment a terrified 11-year-old girl jumped out of a carjacked SUV in Chicago. The carjacker steals a Jeep Cherokee after he and his accomplice pulled up to the gas station in a Dodge Charger

Dramatic video surveillance footage captured the moment a quick thinking 11-year-old girl jumped out of a moving vehicle to escape a carjacker.

The video also shows the girl's father jumping onto the roof of a second auto, trying to stop it.

Kayla Beasanski was in the backseat of her father's auto at a Chicago-area gas station where he was pumping gas when the incident took place, according to WGN-TV.

Without warning, a man jumped into the Jeep Cherokee from the passenger side of a Dodge Charger and begins to drive off with 11-year-Kayla in the backseat.

Police said in a Facebook post the man was the girl's father, and he was attempting to stop the theft.

Fortunately, in spite of the fall from the fast moving SUV, the girl gets seconds later and runs to embrace her father.


While authorities continue to look for Pulley's accomplice, they offer this advice: Don't make it easy on the bad guys.

Police say neither the girl or her father were hurt in the incident.

The video then shows the girl getting up and the man walking back into the frame, and the two hug.

Pulley is now charged with aggravated vehicle hijacking, aggravated unlawful possession of a stolen motor vehicle, and fleeing and eluding police.

An Illinois State Police trooper spotted the stolen SUV less than an hour later on Interstate 290, and 20-year-old Tyrelle L. Pulley of Chicago was arrested following a brief chase.

Aurora Police Department say they are still searching for his accomplice. The Beacon-News reports a police chase ended in a crash, though no one was hurt.
