LOUIS — Police are investigating after a man was hit by his own car after someone stole it while he was warming it up Thursday morning.

Police said they were called to a home on Bowen Street in south St. Louis at around 8:30 for a report of a person struck by a car.

When they arrived, the victim told police he was hit by his own car.

The man said he was standing in the doorway of his home watching his SUV — which he left running to warm up — when a suspect jumped inside the car and started driving off.

The victim said he tried to get the car thief to stop, but the thief hit the man with his own car.

On Monday morning, police said a Holly Hills homeowner told them he was standing on his front porch as his car was warming up.

Police say the thief quickly put the stolen SUV in reverse, crashed into a parked car and tossed the Audi owner into the side of another parked vehicle.

Despite the freezing temperatures, police say anyone warming up their car should stay in the vehicle at all times.
