Fearless mom who yanked carjacker out of vehicle gets shocking news

A Texas woman who made headlines Wednesday by pulling a suspect from his vehicle and holding him until police arrived got a huge surprise from a local Kia dealership — a brand-spanking new minivan to replace the one she’d damaged in the car chase.

The dealer’s generosity left Jessica Liesmann in tears.

After the publicity of Liesmann received when she put an end to a high-speed car chase and detain the suspect, Southwest Kia in Mesquite asked her to come down to the dealership, according to the Dallas-Fort Worth CBS affiliate KTVT.

She figured they were going to give her a free loaner while her own van was being repaired. She never expected to hear these words:

“We’re going to donate a car and you’re going to tell me which one you want,” the dealership’s Bill Dickason told her.

“Oh my God, I’m shaking,” said Liesmann through her tears. “Amazing. Amazing. It means the world to me. Like, literally everything. For all the generosity. I can’t believe it. I just can’t. It’s amazing,”
