Cartel  gunmen, who attempted to carjack a victim targeted by a drug cartel, had the circumstances reversed on him after the intended victim used his car to run over the leader of the group.

The attempted carjacking took place at a highway in the border state of Tamaulipas, Mexico.

The failed carjacking was most likely a kidnapping that occured last week just south of Ciudad Victoria, the capital of Tamaulipas. The city is a known stronghold of the Los Zetas drug cartel.

According to information released by the Tamaulipas government, 30-year-old Carlos Osvaldo Juarez Hernandez confessed to leading a group of carjackers and kidnappers that worked an area known as “the curve” in a local highway.

It was in that area that the group tried to ambush a husband and wife that were driving along the highway. The gunmen stopped their truck along the highway and climbed out of the truck pointing their weapons at the victims.

Juarez Hernandez was carrying an AR-15 as he stood in front of the victims in an attempt to make them stop. Rather than slow down, the husband floored the gas pedal on his small Nissan sedan and struck Juarez Hernandez.

Due to the impact, the AR-15 became embedded in the top section of the windshield. The victims kept driving until they reached a military checkpoint. They stopped and asked for help.

Mexican authorities went to “the curve” and rushed Juarez Hernandez to a local hospital where he was later arrested.

Tamaulipas officials did not identify Juarez Hernandez as being part of Los Zetas despite the group being able to operate in Los Zetas territory. He was able to have an AR-15 and his group had other weapons not readily available in Mexico.
