A 73-year-old man suffered serious head injuries after being carjacked while he checked his tyres pressure.
The pension was using a tyres pressure gauge at a garage in Southampton Hampshire when the thief jumped into the driver’s seat and took off.
The victim, who tried to stop the get-away, was dragged along by his own car at around 7pm last Thursday. He is being treated at Southampton General Hospital.
Hampshire Police said it is believed a second man may have also been involved in the theft.
The stolen vehicle is a grey Renault Grand Scenic people carrier with the registration CV05 RGO.
Det Insp Dave Jackson said: “This is a shocking crime and I would urge anyone who can help us find the offenders to come forward.”
