— -- A teenage girl bailed out of a moving car to escape after she was abducted on her way to school in Bridgeport, Conn. in an incident captured on surveillance video, authorities said.

Despite jumping out of the Toyota, the girl emerged uninjured from the attempted abduction on Oct. 5 at 7:15 a.m.

According to police, the girl had been walking to school when a charcoal Toyota Yaris pulled up alongside her.

At some point, the girl "bailed out" of the car, which made a u-turn on the road.

Police said the victim described the suspect as a Hispanic woman in her 40s with a ponytail, freckles on her face and a black leather jacket.
