KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A carjacking victim in Kansas City says she had to run for her life after her car was forced off the road. 

Ali Mallare was driving along Blue Ridge Boulevard near 81st Street when a car began swerving next to her. 

Then, according to Mallare, it blocked her path, forcing her to stop. 

Mallare said three black men in their 20s emerged from the vehicle. One of them yelled and pointed a gun at her, while another grabbed her by the shirt and pulled her out of the car. 

“Even then, I don’t know that I fully processed anything other than go," she said. 

She ran as fast as she could. At one point, she was struck in the head and knocked to the ground, but got back up and kept on running. 

She was left with bruises and staples in her head from the cut left by the blow. 

Her vehicle, a 2015 dark blue Toyota Camry, was stolen. However, she remains thankful to be alive. 

"I’m grateful," she said. "I get more grateful the more I think of horrific scenarios and how much worse it could be.”

Mallare said the ordeal got scarier when a 21-year-old woman contacted her through Facebook. The second woman told Mallare she believed the same men targeted her in Belton earlier that afternoon. 

That woman spoke to KCTV5 News, saying her story was similar to Mallare's. They forced her off the road and began banging  on the door. She was able to drive off safely.
