A man is in jail after allegedly crashing a car and then stealing the vehicle of a person who stopped to help.

The incident happened in the 4300 block of Martin Road near Duluth on Saturday night.  Witnesses who stopped to help say a vehicle rolled over and the driver ran off into the woods.  

The driver allegedly returned to the scene, stole a Good Samaritan's vehicle, and fled.  A sheriff's deputy stopped the stolen vehicle a short time later and arrested the 24-year-old suspect without incident.

The suspect was treated at a hospital for minor injuries and then taken to the St. Louis County Jail.
