Woman, 75, victim of car-jacking terror.
A WOMAN was car-jacked by a gang who rammed her pounds 17,000 BMW with another BMW.
The 75-year-old woman's keys were snatched as she got out to talk to the other driver.
The woman was shaken but uninjured following her ordeal in the Walton area of Warrington.
It is the second car-jack incident in the region in just three days after another driver had her car robbed at gunpoint in Liverpool.
The woman in the Warrington incident first spotted the carjackers as she was reversing out of her driveway when a silver 7 series BMW drove past her at speed.
As she started driving towards Walton Road she noticed the car was reversing in a driveway.
The next time she saw it was at the junction of Whitefield Road and Walton Road, when her car was shunted.
She got out, taking her keys and handbag with her, and walked towards the other car.
The slver BMW had four people inside in their late teens and early 20s.
The front seat passenger got out of the car and snatched the woman's bag and keys before driving off in her vehicle.
Police said he was described as being white, 5 ft 7ins, medium build, with a shaved head and wearing a light grey top.
The driver of the car was described as 5ft 4ins with short, dark hair and clean shaven. He was wearing a dark top.
The stolen silver BMW Compact, reg MK51 KKC, was last seen on the M56 at junction 11, near Preston Brook.
Sunday's attack comes only days after a woman was car-jacked at gunpoint in Liverpool as she waited to give her friend a lift to work.
The 53-year-old victim was trapped by her seatbelt on Victoria Road, Aigburth, as a male and female jumped into her Peugeot 206.
They tried to force the woman out of the car as the male pointed a handgun at her head and drove the car away at speeds of up to 60mph.
The terror ride eventually came to an end on Beechbank Road off Greenbank Drive where the woman was pushed out when the car was stationary.
It was later found abandoned on Lesseps Road in Toxteth.
The victim, from Childwall, was also robbed of her handbag and her watch was pulled from her wrist.
Anyone with any information on the Warrington attack should call police on 01925 652222.
