Car crash ‘angel’ robbed while helping an elderly lady
A CALLOUS thief has stolen a Good Samaritan's handbag while she comforted an elderly woman involved in a serious crash.
Now the crash victim has begun searching for the "angel", who stayed by her side while she waited to be cut from her badly damaged car.
The Currimundi woman, who does not want to be named, was trapped after her car ploughed down an embankment off the Bruce Hwy south of Caloundra about 3pm last Wednesday. She said the girl, aged in her early 20s, was the only person who bothered to stop and check on her.
The reward for her kindness was to have someone reach into her car at the side of the highway and take her handbag.
"She just appeared at my window and said: 'Are you all right?'," the shaken and badly bruised woman said. "I remember thinking: 'Thank god, there is someone here to help and I'm alive'. She stayed with me the whole time and comforted me until they took me away in the ambulance.
"So many people drove straight past me - slowed down to have a look and then drove off. Good people seem to be in short supply these days."
The "pretty young woman" collected the injured woman's belongings from her car and delivered them to her neighbours while she was in hospital.
It was then she revealed her handbag had been stolen. It was found later with all her money missing.
"I feel like crying when I think how good she was to me and then had this happen to her," the crash victim said.
"I would just like to find her so I can say thank-you."
