Carjacked pregnant woman has vehicle replaced by Harvey mayor

HAMMOND, Ind. (WLS) -- A pregnant woman who was carjacked has gotten that stolen vehicle replaced thanks to Harvey's mayor.

Surveillance video captured two teens jumping into Selina Gonzalez's car after she left the keys in the ignition at a gas station in Hammond on Thursday.

Her car was later found and brought to a tow lot in Harvey. The car is no longer drivable, so Mayor Eric Kellogg replaced the car.

"They don't know me, you know. I'm from a whole different state. They didn't have to help someone that they don't know, that's not a part of their community and to be treated like I am a part of the community is just amazing," Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez has two children and a third on the way, which she's expecting in less than two weeks.
