Original post: A woman whose car was stolen in North Seattle Monday was hospitalized after she jumped on the hood in an attempt to stop the thief, police said.

Seattle police spokesman Drew Fowler said officers were called to the 4400 block of Woodlawn Avenue North around 3 p.m. by a witness to the carjacking. Police were in the neighborhood within two minutes and caught the suspect in the victim’s car, several blocks north in Phinney Ridge.

It’s unclear how the woman was hurt. The woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries, Fowler said.
