When it comes to our cars they can be one of the most prized possessions in our lives. For this reason when someone tries to take them away we tend to become a little aggressive, agitated and don’t always think straight. Car Hijacking situations can often result in a range of injuries mainly caused by the struggle that ensues between the hijacker and the driver of the vehicle. Hijackers can often use a variety of weapons and this can often leave the driver of the car with incredibly serious injuries.
