Regalado and his wife pursued the suspect in the family van. Regalado said Cantu, who was only a block away, turned the stolen vehicle around and rammed them.
"He pulls a screwdriver," the driver said. "He says, 'Don't make me stab you,' so I grabbed the screwdriver, pulled it to the side, and kicked him. I pressed the gas at the same time and took off."Video at the link
Police said Cantu approached another driver in the area who claims he saw him coming.The driver, who wanted to remain unidentified, said he hit the carjacker with his pickup.
"He jumped on me and tried to open my door, but I already knew what he was going to do," the driver said. "So, I locked all my doors. I turned my truck into him and hit him with my truck. I got him pretty good."
