For about 40 miles, Elsya and her 20-month-old son were trapped in a car with a stranger at the wheel.With the back doors unhitched and flapping, and speeding at more than 100 miles per hour,she says,the strange man threatened her, wielded a shard of glass like a knife and convinced her that she and her child were going to be killed.
"I thought, 'We're going to die either way,'" said Elsya, who spoke to The Sun on the condition that her last name not be published. Either from his wild driving or at his own hands, Elsya thought she and baby Julius were as good as dead.
Yesterday, the mother and child were at home recovering from injuries, having jumped from a moving car during a high-speed chase from Baltimore to Washington.
