OKLAHOMA CITY -

A carjacking suspect crashed the car after leading officers on a chase early Tuesday morning in northwest Oklahoma City.

The victim said that the suspect, later identified as 25-year-old Erik Aguilar, opened her door and told her to get out. The victim said she refused and began to struggle with Aguilar. That's when Aguilar pulled her out of the car and threw her on the ground.

According to police, Aguilar then got into the victim's car and drove away.
