Carly Pope, an actress from the high school drama Popular, was a passenger in a BMW driven by her brother Kris when a man jumped onto the hood of the car.
Carly Pope’s brother, Kris, bailed out of the car to confront the man but he jumped into the vacant driver’s seat and tried to speed off with the actress still in the car.
Kris Pope struggled with the car thief and tried to pull him out of the car, but the man put the car in reverse and crash into three other vehicles before smashing into a building.
Both siblings were taken to the hospital along with a pedestrian and the suspect, who was arrested at the scene.
“Carly’s got a couple of broken vertebrae, and I’ve got a broken wrist, possibly a broken ankle and a smashed up face,” Kris stated.
David Fomradas, 31, faces charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and dangerous driving.
Kris and Carly Pope were released from hospital later Tuesday evening.
