A Texas man is hoping Facebook will lead to the arrest of a man who stole his sister’s wallet after she was involved in a car accident.
Kimberly Smith was driving in Irving, Texas, on the morning of Sept. 27 when she was involved in a rollover accident. Her car rolled over three times. Joshua Smith, her brother said that may have not been the worse part.
Joshua took to Facebook to share the story of how a “tall, skinny black male in his 30’s” approached his sister while she was trapped upside down in the vehicle. He claims the man said he was going to help Kimberly, but instead robbed her and drove off.
“Some guy stop [sic] to help her,” Joshua wrote. “Even found her purse and brought it over to her. She was still dazed and confused from the accident and he said he was gonna go get his cell to call 911.
“She begged him to just stay with her. He said “don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere.”
“He gets in his truck and takes off. With her wallet. All her credit cards. Id’s. Everything. And all this happened after she was trapped upside down and NOBODY stopped to help her. What the hell is wrong with this world!?”
Eventually someone stopped and called 911. The good Samaritan waited with Kimberly until emergency services arrived when she was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Joshua is now hoping his Facebook post, which has been shared more than 35,000 times, will lead to the capture and arrest of the unidentified man, who remains at large.
“If anybody has a ‘friend’ that is bragging about robbing some girl after she flipped her car this morning, please be a real friend and let us know,” he wrote.
“I hope this guy who stopped to ‘help’ and everyone that did not stop at all, is not a majority in our society today,” Joshua added. “We are better people than that. Everyone please share this and maybe we can find this loser.”
Kimberly is recovering well from the accident and she responded to one of the commenters who said she would be praying for her.
“Thank you! The prayers have worked!” Kimberly wrote. “Just surviving that accident would’ve been a blessing, but the fact that I was able to find away [sic] to free myself and walk away without any major or real injury is nothing short of a miracle!”
