Police in New Jersey say a possible carjacker or carjackers apparently removed a sleeping 80-year-old woman from her parked car before stealing the vehicle and leaving her in the driveway. Hamilton police say the woman told them she'd fallen asleep in her parked car in a driveway around 9pm Wednesday, but woke to find the vehicle missing at around 4am on Thursday, the AP reports. Police say the woman didn't remember what happened and had a bruise and abrasion on her face."She awoke in the driveway, she wasn't sure how she had gotten there," Lt. Mark Horan tells ABC6. Authorities found the empty vehicle Thursday afternoon in Trenton. No arrests have been made. (More New Jersey stories.)
