In November, an alleged carjacker stole a vehicle, crashed into a taxi moments later and climbed onto a moving SUV while attempting to avert police in Midtown Manhattan. Police said the carjacking victim was attempting to park his car at the southwest corner of Broadway and West 55th Street when 37-year-old Terrence Brooks allegedly threatened him, entered his car and drove away.

Moments later, Brooks sped down 55th Street and crashed the stolen vehicle into a taxi and a parked car, according to the NYPD. As bystanders tended to the injured, Brooks is captured on video jogging away and then returning to the stolen car. When police approach Brooks, he flees and climbs on top of a moving SUV at an adjacent intersection. Soon after, police took him into custody. He is being charged with grand larceny auto and reckless driving.
