IRVING, Texas — A woman was scared and dazed, trapped upside down after her car rolled three times during an accident in Texas. But it’s what happened after the crash that is even more unsettling to her and her family.

In a Facebook post, Joshua Smith said a man posing as a Good Samaritan robbed his sister, Kimberly, who was the driver involved in the single-vehicle crash.

Joshua Smith said the crash happened on Sept. 27. He said a man stopped to “help” his sister, and even found her purse for her. He then said he was going to call 911. While Kimberly begged the man to stay with her, he ended up getting in his truck and taking off.

“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...” — Joshua Smith

Kimberly was able to get out of her car and sat by the side of the road, KHOU reports. A stranger finally stopped and called 911. Shortly after the crash, Joshua wrote on Facebook:

“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 is described as a tall, skinny black male, in his 30’s, driving a red pickup truck. Kimberly some how managed to walk away from this. She is headed to the ER now. Please say a prayer for her. I hope this guy who stopped to “help” and everyone that did not stop at all, is not a majority in our society today. We are better people than that. Everyone please share this and maybe we can find this loser. Thank y’all.” — Joshua Smith

Kimberly suffered only cuts and bruises, according to KHOU.

    Hard to know what to wish for. Wish she didn’t lose much money, but on the other hand hope there was enough to make it a bigger crime. What a sleaze! Doesn’t sound like a high traffic area or time.
