A 15-year-old girl was last night fighting for life in hospital after getting struck by a car, during an apparent attempted car-jacking.
It all started around 7:30 last night, when a woman in her 20s agreed to give a boy and girl, both in their teens, a lift from Harbour Town Shopping Centre to Mullewa Crescent, Helensvale.
When the arrived at the address, one of the teenagers allegedly pulled a knife on the driver, and demanded she give them the car.
The woman refused to hand it over and took off instead, striking the 15-year-old girl in the process.
She suffered life-threatening injuries and was rushed to hospital, while the woman behind the wheel had a minor gash to her hand.
The other alleged offender fled the scene on foot.
