A good Samaritan who stopped at a car crash was attacked and injured by the people she was trying to help.
Police are hunting three people who tried to carjack the 26-year-old woman on the Warburton Highway at Wandin North after they rolled their Audi sedan just before 1am on Friday.
The trio – two men and a woman – climbed out of the car and hailed the Woori Yallock woman’s car, which was travelling in the opposite direction, police say.
Once she stopped, they demanded she take them in her vehicle, but she refused.
She was forced to wedge herself into her car seat by jamming her foot against the windscreen while one of the men assaulted her and the other tried to pull her out.
