Texas Man: My Sister Was Robbed After Her Car Flipped Over

A Texas man is hoping his now viral Facebook post will lead to the arrest of a man who stole his sister’s wallet after she was involved in a car accident.

Kimberly Smith was driving in Irving, Texas, on the morning of Sept. 27 when her car rolled over three times, My San Antonio reported. But according to her brother, Joshua Smith, that may have not been the worse part.

Joshua took to Facebook to share the story of how a “tall, skinny black male in his 30's” approached his sister while she was trapped upside down in the vehicle. He claims the man said he was going to help Kimberly, but instead robbed her and drove off.

“Some guy stop [sic] to help her,” Joshua wrote. “Even found her purse and brought it over to her. She was still dazed and confused from the accident and he said he was gonna go get his cell to call 911.

“She begged him to just stay with her. He said don't worry, I'm not going anywhere.

“He gets in his truck and takes off. With her wallet. All her credit cards. Id's. Everything. And all this happened after she was trapped upside down and NOBODY stopped to help her. What the hell is wrong with this world!?”

Someone eventually stopped and called 911. The good Samaritan waited with Kimberly until emergency services arrived. She was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Joshua is now hoping his Facebook post, which has been shared more than 35,000 times, will lead to the capture and arrest of the unidentified man, who remains at large.

“If anybody has a ‘friend’ that is bragging about robbing some girl after she flipped her car this morning, please be a real friend and let us know,” he wrote.

“I hope this guy who stopped to ‘help’ and everyone that did not stop at all, is not a majority in our society today,” Joshua added. “We are better people than that. Everyone please share this and maybe we can find this loser.”

Kimberly is recovering well from the accident. She responded to one of the commenters who said she would be praying for her.

“Thank you! The prayers have worked!” Kimberly wrote. “Just surviving that accident would've been a blessing, but the fact that I was able to find away [sic] to free myself and walk away without any major or real injury is nothing short of a miracle!”

Bigotry? I call it Common Sense, I know this city. I stand by what I said, all I need is an address to determine if I need to read the story.

Try to stomach the entire25 minutes. They didn’t even cover all of the areas.

No, not all thugs are black. Thugs come in all colors and shapes just like kind, caring people do.

Anyone taking advantage of someone in distress is the lowest of the low.

I totally agree... If I were to draw the same conclusions, based on what I see in the daily news in my area, I'd think that all pedophiles/sex offenders are white males between the ages of 35 and 65, about 1/2 very affluent and the other 1/2 scuzzy bearded homeless guys... but all white, none the less!!

It's a mistake to make to make broad generalizations based only on what you see on the local news. If I did that, based on the names and faces the sheriff here makes sure are printed front and center on the local news, I would draw the conclusion that all looters are White meth heads.
Drawing the wrong conclusions based on too little info? I think it's called prejudice or bigotry or something like that.

While there may be too many black thugs around, I totally disagree that all thugs are black... My area certainly has its share of white and Hispanic thugs, as well.

I browse through the local news online every day and there is at least one shooting almost every night. I just look for the address and move on it’s the same ole story so I don’t even bother reading it. If they have no desire to change, I damned sure am not going to lose any sleep over them.
I have more respect for an illegal immigrant, standing in front of Home Depot looking for work, than I have for a Hood Rat.

And black people wonder why I hate them so much.

THIS is part of the reason I completely disassociate myself with them and their race.

Not all blacks are thugs, but all thugs are black.

Let the calls of "LMNO is a racist" begin...
