CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A woman told police someone stole her car while she was trying to help an accident victim Wednesday.

Police responded at approximately 5:50 p.m. to the intersection of Magnolia Road and 5th Avenue. Taylor Knight said she parked her car nearby with the keys still in the ignition and aided one of the accident victims until Charleston Fire and Police arrived on the scene.

"It's not even a thought in my head, at all. If it was I might have taken my keys out, but still it's a couple seconds you're losing just to get the keys out of the ignition," Taylor Knight said.

She said approximately five to ten minutes later, she discovered her car was missing, the incident report states.

A firefighter told police he saw a man reach inside the woman's vehicle but assumed he owned it. 

Knight said everything happened so quickly, she didn't think about leaving her car, "I literally pulled over and just put my hazard lights on and after that i was like I'm going to leave this here. I'm just going to make sure everyone's okay."

A second witness told police he saw the man walk into a nearby store and said the store may have surveillance video of him. That witness also told police one of his friends said the unidentified man lives in the area and is known to ride his bicycle in the area.

The vehicle is a dark gray 2014 Chevy Cruze with South Carolina tag MRG381, the report states.

Police were working to obtain surveillance video of the incident.

Anyone with information on the man's identity should contact Charleston County Consolidated Dispatch at 843-743-7200 or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
