SASSENBERG - In a bad news-good news story, a German woman had her car stolen while she was helping a road accident victim, but the car was later recovered at the German-Polish border, police said on Tuesday.

The incident occurred late on Monday near the small western German town of Sassenberg, 380 kilometres west of Berlin, when the 36-year- old woman pulled over to help an injured motorcyclist.

The woman left her car engine running, which proved to be a mistake. Two 28-year-old seasonal labourers who happened on the accident scene noticed the car, jumped in it and drove away.

Several hours later, the car was intercepted at the German-Polish border point Frankfurt/Oder, about 90 kilometres east of Berlin, police said.
