A Strabane woman says she feared for her life after a man climbed on top of her car while she was stopped at traffic lights.

Margaret McIntyre says she stopped at the Melmount Road traffic lights beside the local girls’ school on Sunday evening when the man got on top of her vehicle after running back and forward in front of her vehicle.

Ms McIntyre, who had been travelling home form church in Sion Mills, says she will not travel on the road at night again.

Ms McIntyre said that after a spate of recent carjackings in Belfast, she feared she was going to be hijacked or even killed.

“He just jumped up on the bonnet of the car, I was scared I was going to be killed.

“I was absolutely terrified. I will not come down the Melmount Road again at night,” she said.
