White stopped for gas and a drink at a gas station on Covered Bridge Rd. in Brookwood. As he was heading back onto the highway, White saw a vehicle in his rear view mirror coming towards his car at a high rate of speed.

White said he braced for the crash that was about to happen. The vehicle did make contact with his Camaro. White, like most people, pulled over on the shoulder and got out of his car.

White stated that after a few seconds, four male assailants exited the vehicle that rammed his, and they all were carrying guns.

White also said that one of the men grabbed him and held his gun to White's neck.

The gunman demanded White hand over his car keys, according to White.

At that point, White said he informed the attackers that the keys were in his vehicle.

White said he feared for his life and also handed over his smartphone after the gunmen demanded it.

White's wife, Ashley, posted photos of the car that her husband says was stolen on Facebook.
The Tuscaloosa County Sherrif's Department shared news of the incident on their Facebook earlier today.
