Carjacked E92 crashes into CBC Vancouver studios

http://www.canada.com/news/Stolen+cr...529/story.html
Quote:
VANCOUVER — Four people were injured Tuesday morning in an apparent carjacking in downtown Vancouver that ended with a BMW coupe smashing into CBC's new studio.

Police say a pedestrian leaped on the hood of a BMW stopped at a Vancouver crosswalk.

After an argument with the suspect, the driver left the car parked and sought help. The suspect then got into the car and sped off backwards, hitting three vehicles before smashing into the ground-floor windows of the CBC building.

Police say it appears the car's two occupants may have been dragged under the BMW. However, some witnesses told The Vancouver Province a woman was in the vehicle while the suspect tried to speed away.

A pedestrian was injured when the man tried to help the driver stop the suspect from driving away, witnesses said.

Before police and ambulance units arrived, bystanders restrained the suspect, who tried to leave the scene, police say.

Four people are in hospital. The suspect could face charges of robbery and assault, Vancouver police say.

At the scene, police investigators were photographing the debris and pools of blood for evidence.

Some witnesses say the well-dressed suspect appeared to be deranged.

The CBC studios recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation with a more prominent street presence.

Carly Pope -- 'Popular' with Carjackers

Posted Dec 30th 2009 10:13AM by TMZ Staff
Carly Pope -- former star of the TV show "Popular" -- was rushed to a Vancouver hospital yesterday after a carjacker stole her ride and smashed into a building -- all while the actress was still inside.



Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that Pope and her brother were in their BMW when an unknown man jumped on the hood. We're told her brother got out of the car to check out the situation -- and somehow, the unknown man jumped in.

The suspect tried to drive away, but crashed into three cars before hitting a building. We're told Carly was in the car when it crashed.

Both Carly and her brother -- along with the suspect and a pedestrian -- were taken to the hospital and treated for injuries. Everyone was released from the hospital, but the suspect was taken into custody.

UPDATE 3:15 PM ET -- Charges against the alleged carjacker are in and they're a doozy: theft over $5,000, kidnapping without the use of a firearm, two charges of aggravated assault, two charges of dangerous driving causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon, and mischief to property over $5,000.

...no, it said the charge was "kidnapping without a firearm." Even when there's violence, it's kind of peaceful...

Haha, she looked familiar to me too but couldn't remember where I've seen her until you made the connection.

Not sure if the car's owner is a member, but would be willing the bet the carjacker is NOT. He'll be spending some time behind bars. It sounds like the driver and passenger were released from the hospital and will probably be fine once the insurance company sends them a check!

Ouch. That was some pretty good damage for only driving the car about 50 feet!
