Car Thief Is Shocked When Victim Fights Back

On Saturday, a car thief tried to carjack an elderly woman in Utah. It was Christopher Bigler who tried to steal 69-year-old Saratoga Springs resident Frances Mach’s car as she pulled into her daughter's home. Mach told KUTV, “He says ‘take me out of here … go!’ He started to reach for the steering wheel and he smacked me with the other hand and said ‘go!’” Yet, Mach wasn't going to let Bigler get away so easily. Instead, Mach decided to fight back as she allegedly hit Bigler in the head around three or four times, then demanded that he leave her car.

Bigler left the car and ran inside Mach's daughter's home. Bigler soon started a fire upstairs. When police arrived, they were able to clear most of the downstairs areas, but the upstairs was filled with heavy smoke. In addition, they were able to detain Bigler who was taken to the hospital to get treated for smoke inhalation and injuries from Mach’s defense punches. Mach added “He couldn’t believe it, I’ll tell you what, because I fought back. He looked about half scared. They told me his face was already starting to swell, so I must have landed him pretty good.” According to authorities, the family did not know Bigler.
