NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A driver was pumping gas in downtown Nashville Sunday evening when he was carjacked and dragged with his SUV.

He was at the Exxon station on the corner of 11th Avenue South and Broadway at 8 p.m. when a stranger jumped in his SUV.

The man tried to stop the thief, but was not successful. Instead, he got dragged for a short distance.

The victim had some scrapes, but declined to go to the hospital because his injury is not serious.

Police are looking for a 2009 Nissan Pathfinder and two people in relation to the theft. No further descriptions were available.
