Convicted carjacker sentenced to 8 years

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A man convicted of carjacking a woman in Ohio City and then running her over with her own car was sentenced to eight years in prison Thursday.

Brandon Clark was charged with felonious assault and robbery in the January crime.

Prosecutors say the 67-year-old victim saw Clark stealing a bike from her yard and jumped in her car to go after him. Marsha Pressman cut him off with her vehicle.

Clark stopped, opened the car door, dragged her from the vehicle and began punching her.

Clark got back in Pressman's car, backed into her and drove away.

He was arrested after crashing at W. 32nd and Franklin.
