Karma comes calling: Suspect involved in fatal wreck after grandmother brutally beaten during carjacking

In a shocking twist, the man suspected of roughing up a 72-year-old woman and stealing her car died in a fatal crash near where the alleged assault took place.

Shirlene Hernandez, a great-grandmother from Texas, was minding her own business at a gas station in San Antonio Tuesday morning when a frenzied man reportedly stole her vehicle keys from her and hit her multiple times in the face. Despite three good Samaritans attempting to come to her aid, the man escaped, jumping into her vehicle and taking off.

Unfortunately, that turned out to be the last thing he would ever do, as his dead body was found in Hernandez’s wrecked vehicle on the highway close to the gas station. But the older woman takes no pleasure in knowing the man who likely attacked her is no longer alive, and she is not chalking it up to karma.

“There’s a lot of people who would say what goes around comes around, karma. I did not think that; the only thing I got (was) really sad because he had died,” she remarked during an interview. “Now granted, he had hurt me, but the Lord saw fit to take him out of his misery.”

Despite extensive bruising across her face, Hernandez is in good spirits. However, without a vehicle, she is unable to travel to and from work. A GoFundMe page launched to help her with that had an initial goal of $5,000 but, as of this writing Wednesday morning, has brought in more than $28,000 in donations.

While Hernandez was incredibly gracious after experiencing such a brutal crime with a dramatic conclusion, social media was not interested in being the bigger person:
