Kidnapping Victim Describes Harrowing Escape from Trunk of Her Own Car – Using Her Insulin Pump

A 25-year-old nursing student is speaking out after she escaped her kidnapper by jumping out of the trunk of her own moving car — a plan she concocted after remembering a video she had seen on Facebook.

Brittany Diggs appeared on the Today show Monday, describing the terrifying ordeal she experienced on Tuesday when a man approached her with a gun and demanded money while she was walking to her apartment in Birmingham.

When the student said she didn’t have any money, the man forced her into her Nissan Altima and told her to drive him to another part of town.

“He was like, ‘Well, since you don’t have any money, you’re going to help me get money,’ ” she said.

After unsuccessfully trying to rob two couples, the suspect demanded Diggs check her trunk before telling her to get inside, she said.

The kidnapper then found her wallet and demanded her PIN numbers to withdraw cash from ATMs, threatening to kill her if she didn’t comply.

She recalled, “Every other thing he said was ‘or I’m going to kill you.’ “

The suspect became increasingly frustrated after he failed to get cash at several ATMs. He stopped at a gas station to try another, and Diggs said panic started to set in.

“My bigger fear was he was gonna drive this car into a river and I’m going to drown here in this trunk,” she said.

Then the student remembered a Facebook video describing how to use a latch to open a car trunk from the inside. She used the light on her insulin pump to find the latch in the darkness and waited for her kidnapper to get back into the vehicle.

When the suspect got back into the car, he pulled out much faster than Diggs said she expected. Still, she pulled the latch and tumbled out of the trunk, a harrowing escape that was caught on the gas station’s security cameras. She was able to run into the gas station store to hide while the owner called police.

With the suspect still at large, Diggs doesn’t feel safe enough to return to her apartment.

“I try to put it in the back of my head so I can just get through the day, but that was the scariest thing I ever had to deal with,” she said. “It was just a lot because I’m not from here and I don’t have a support system down here besides my roommate. I just felt like it was a lot.”

HIT AND RUN INSTANT JUSTICE, WHERES A COP WHEN YOU NEED ONE?

There are few things more satisfying than karma doing it’s thing immediately, and luckily sometimes we get to see that take place right before our very eyes.

This dashcam footage captured one such moment when our camera vehicle was sideswiped by a silver Nissan Altima that was making a lane change in fairly heavy traffic.

Instead of doing the right thing and pulling to the shoulder, the Nissan tries to just drive away, but the dashcammer is having none of that.

He pursues the Altima through traffic, though it becomes quickly obvious that the driver has no intention of stopping to discuss the incident.

However, karma makes its appearance in the form of a Miami-Dade County police van, which just happens to be traveling the same direction . The dashcam car pulls alongside and, despite not having any volume, we can assume he quickly tells the officer in the van what’s happened, since a few seconds later, we see the strobes light up on the van as he pulls behind the Altima. With no other option, the Nissan’s finally pulls to the shoulder, where he is joined by the officer and our cam vehicle. Instant karma, caught on camera!

 

2017 Ford Torino: A Larger Muscle Car than the Mustang

Turin is a city in Italy where Ford gets the name of one of their car models. Though it was just produced in a short period from 1968 to 1976, it was already too big during those times which the company also expect the same for the 2017 Ford Torino.
As for the exterior, it showcases the combination of traditional and modern features with sharp front and curved look.

However, this model doesn’t include a bumper. For the body structure, it received an additional 5 inches of its length which make it longer compared to the model way back before.

The American multinational automaker, Ford, gave this Torino a stylish alloy 20 inches wheels. For a much improved lighter weight, aluminum materials is utilized on the body panels. The choice of the material is also to make the vehicle a great performance car.

Interior for the 2017 Ford Torino offers a modernized system with few details that still leaves a mark from the model in 70’s. For an easier access and control of the infotainment features, 8 inches LED screen on the dashboard is included.

Seats for the driver and passengers is more likely made out of leather with some space for more comfort. As for the steering wheel, it is placed lower than conventional.

When it comes to muscle cars, the engine is at its best. So as expected, the 2017 Ford Torino comes to the road like a beast that is surely a competitive model in the auto market. The car comes with a powerful V8 Ti-VCT 5.0 liter engine which is present in the Ford’s Mustang GT car model. It can run up to 435 of horsepower with the use of 93-octane fuel and a 400 lb-ft of torque.

Expectations on the car’s acceleration rating are to reach 0-60 mph in the span of 4 seconds. This rating is based on the Ford Mustang which means that this latest Torino might get  170 mph as a top speed. In addition, the fuel economy rating is said to be 15 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
