Chicago woman carjacks vehicle with boy inside

A Chicago woman is accused of stealing an SUV with a 13-year-old boy inside after she hit the vehicle on Interstate 80.

Indiana State Police says Larona Green, 32, was eastbound on I-80 this morning near Lansing when she rear-ended a suburban driven by a man from Michigan. He got out to check on Green, but she got into his suburban and drove off with the man’s son in the passenger seat.

The boy had a cell phone and called his father, describing the route the woman was taking.

Police caught up with Green on Interstate 94 near Portage. The boy wasn’t hurt, but police say Green’s blood alcohol level was .119.

She is now charged with drunk driving, criminal confinement and possession of a stolen vehicle.
