An alleged carjacker has driven off from a hospital carpark wearing only his underpants and crashed as a woman tried to restrain him from the backseat in Melbourne’s south-west, police say.

The man, wearing only his underwear, allegedly approached a 45-year-old woman and pulled her from her car in the Werribee Mercy Hospital carpark on Princes Highway about 5pm on Monday.

The Bellfield man, 37, had already started to drive off when the Hoppers Crossing woman jumped into the backseat and tried to stop him, police say.

It’s alleged the car smashed into parked cars at the hospital while the woman tried to call police, before the man crashed into an embankment on Sneydes Road about 5.20pm.
