An Omani woman jumped out of her car to escape a thief who tried to rob her, causing the vehicle to roll on its own and crash into a nearby shop.
A YouTube film posted on social networks showed the woman, wearing traditional Arabian abaya (gown), screamed and jumped out of her car just as the thief came close.
She ran away while the thief also fled.
The film showed the car rolled away and banged into a shop, causing damage to its front and forcing customers to run out.
It was not clear where the incident occurred.
