A Pennsylvania woman is credited with stopping an accused bank robber by crashing into his getaway vehicle.
Robbery suspect Alexis Laskowski had to abandon his sport-utility vehicle about a quarter-mile from the heist in Warrington after the collision with Tina Gleim, police told York TV station WPMT.
Gleim, 51, was outside the bank Thursday when a shaken teller told her they had just been robbed.
"I thought, 'I can't stop him any other way, I might as well hit him,'" Gleim told the York Dispatch. "I saw an opportunity that I could stop a criminal from getting away with it."
Police arrested Laskowski, 38, shortly after the collision.
Gleim has survived Stage 4 colon cancer and the partial removal of her right lung, according to the Dispatch.
"I'd probably do it again if the timing worked out, if I had an opportunity," she said.
