Before the suspects could take off, the victim popped the emergency latch on the trunk, jumped out, and then called police.
A short time later, officers spotted the car at a McDonald's on Murfreesboro Pike near Fesslers Lane, at which point a pursuit ensued. Police said speeds topped 100 miles an hour.
The car eventually crashed on Interstate 40 at Hermitage Avenue near Decatur and Fain Streets.
