A Florida felon has been accused of trying to carjack four vehicles after being involved in a hit-and-run accident on an interstate, authorities said.

The attempted carjackings took place Friday morning after Christopher Hendrix, 32, crashed his truck on I-4 in Lake Alfred, they said.

“This violent, convicted felon was bound and determined to forcibly steal a car this morning, but our citizens said not today,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said. “While I’m grateful nobody was seriously injured, I’m also very proud of these four victims for keeping their wits about them and refusing to allow this man to take what’s theirs.”
