Lady Lake Police are advising motorists to be a little cautious after they handled an attempted carjacking incident earlier today. It happened around 10:20 a.m. at La Grande Blvd. and La Plaza Parkway. Police say a red Cadillac bumped into the rear of blue Mercedes driven by a senior woman. When the woman got out to check for damage, one of three male suspects got into her vehicle, but was unsuccessful in getting the car in gear to drive off. The three male suspects fled the scene in their vehicle after bystanders called 911. Police were unable to provide detailed suspect descriptions at this time. Police Chief Chris McKinstry reminds motorists if they suspect something unusual or don't believe car collision was accidental, they should wait for others or call 911.
