St. Petersburg, Florida --  Police say a third suspect could still be on the loose after a carjacking Thursday.

The department's forensic unit tended to the 91-year-old victim, Beverley Landrey, who says the incident and her injuries felt worse today.

We now know what Beverly Landrey was doing in that neighborhood. She was driving to a local market to get some ice cream for her husband.  That's when things took a tragic turn.

"It was within a second. I felt the body going around me, getting in the car, and I thought, 'My God, what's happening? I know what's happening.'"

What was happening, police say, was a carjacking.

Police arrested two men, Travonte Banks and Savon Hunter, for the carjacking. Hunter was also arrested for violation of probation and other misdemeanors.

While telling her story, Landrey paused. "I've lost my train of thought. A friend told me trauma is pictures. I've been noticing this. I get to the end of a picture and have to pause to get to the next frame. So, I guess that's some of it."

She says the rest of it includes new bumps and bruises.

"I reached up this morning and thought, 'Oh, that is new.'"

Landrey says in almost a century of a lifetime, this experience is
also new. "Being a Depression child, you fight for everything you do. It is in my bones, I guess. What is left of them."
