Victim run over in carjacking recalls events

MOUNT HEALTHY, OH (FOX19) -

A man run over by his own stolen vehicle spoke with FOX19 NOW about the events that happened day in Mount Healthy. 

According to police, the clerk Aaron Burmeister at the Speedway in the 7600 block of Hamilton Avenue in Mount Healthy exited the store to warm his vehicle and left his car running and unattended in the store lot. 

Burmeister then reportedly re-entered the store and observed a black male sitting inside the vehicle. 

"I turned the car on to try and melt the ice and I went back into the store for just a second," stated Burmeister. "I came out of the store and I saw a young man running toward my car going to get in"

Officials said Burmeister exited the store to confront the individual and was then run over by the suspect as he fled the scene.

"He got in and closed the door and I ran up to the door and tried to open it," claimed Burmeister. "He was already moving at that point and that's when he clipped me."

Burmeister suffered injuries including, two broken legs and a compression fracture in his left knee cap -- and a wound only time may be able to fix, fear.

"It scared me very much," he said.  

Burmeister says for the first month he won't be able to put pressure on his legs and will be confined to a wheel chair for a month as well. He also says he'll have to undergo at least one to two months of physical rehabilitation before he can return to work. 

"I appreciate all the support and the prayers that I've been getting and any help that they can to the go fund me page would be most appreciated," said Burmeister.  

Police are asking for the community's assistance in finding a silver 2004 Chevrolet Malibu with Ohio plate DSM6236 that has an ARMY bumper sticker and a broken rear taillight. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Mount Healthy police at 513-728-3183 or Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.
