Good Samaritan Run Over by Fleeing Shoplifters… Twice.

A Florida woman was run over by a getaway driver who police said was helping a shoplifter outside an Ocoee Publix Monday night. The incident occurred around 7 p.m. at the Publix on Colonial Drive at Good Homes Road.

Police said a man went into the store and tried to steal a shopping cart full of goods.  A witness told police she and another woman saw and confronted him, alerting a manager. She said when she walked outside, the man had already stuffed the pilfered product into the trunk.

One of the women tried to take a picture of the car and as the suspects backed up to drive way, they hit the woman twice, according to police. Police said the woman may have broken her legs, but is expected to be okay. Police are looking for the two men in the car that ran her over.    [Source: WFTV9 News]
