Texas mom thwarts carjacker, runs him over

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (KMSP) -

Don't mess with this Texas mom: Dorothy Barker says the carjacker who attacked her inside her minivan picked the wrong "witch."

Barker successfully fought the carjacker with her two small children in the van while leaving a Houston area pharmacy.

She later issued a verbal warning: "You don't come after people with kids, and I told him that he messed with the wrong...witch."

The carjacker was wielding a knife when he popped up in the back of the van. Barker said she struggled with him after he threatened her, sustaining a cut on her chest, but she still managed to throw him out of the car. Then she ran him over.

Barker said that last portion of her defensive strategy was an accident.

The man is still in the hospital with back injuries and will face serious charges upon his release.
