BIG SPRING - A Rankin couple got quite a scare on Tuesday morning in Big Spring when a man tried to hijack their car.

Police say 29-year-old Byron Shedd from Dallas was spotted in a stolen car on Tuesday morning.

When police turned on their lights, Shedd took off running and ran toward a gas station.

Police say he jumped into a car and woman sitting in the passenger seat jumped out.

The woman's husband, Earl Hill, who was pumping gas, grabbed Shedd's shirt and the steering wheel.

We're told Shedd drove off with hill still holding onto the wheel.

Hill eventually had to let go and Shedd hit an embankment, lost control and crashed into a fence.

He was arrested on site.

Hill was treated for minor injuries.
