As she was getting out of the cab she fell and hit her head, causing a serious injury. She was taken to Hennipen County Medical Center. Two other cars, both with children inside, were also rammed several times.
Police said the whole incident started when the suspect stole a car that was running to keep it warm. It is a misdemeanor to leave a car running unattended because it often leads to car theft.
