WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (ABC4) – Police are searching for two suspects who crashed a car into a West Valley City residence after they carjacked a woman in a Costco parking lot early Wednesday afternoon.

Shortly before 12:30 p.m., two men in their late teens or early twenties carjacked a woman in a Costco parking lot, police say. While traveling along 3800 South in the stolen vehicle, the two suspects hit another car.

The stolen car bounced off that same car and crashed into Lorna Giggey’s home over by the intersection of 3800 South and Cheryl Street.

Every morning Giggey says she sits in a green chair outside her home, but on Wednesday she decided to take a nap instead.

“I just gave word of thanks that I wasn’t sitting out in that green chair,” said Giggey.

Giggey said the carjackers hit that chair when they drove into her home.

“I thought I was having a nightmare,” said Giggey.

Police are currently searching for both suspects, who ran off after the crash. Both suspects were observed wearing dark clothing.

While Giggey wasn’t injured, the driver of the other car that was hit by the stolen vehicle was taken to the hospital and remains in serious condition. The two other occupants of that car suffered minor injuries.

The carjacking victim was not injured and the suspects did not use any weapons during the incident, according to police.

Giggey told ABC4 she is at a loss for words over what the young men did.

“I could say some really mean things, but I don’t think that’s what would help them. I can tell them to get a life, but that wouldn’t help them because they don’t know what that is,” said Giggey.
