Posted: Updated:

A plot to steal a car backfired on a group of thieves in Bennington.

Police say 30-year-old Joseph Maier was drunk, stole his girlfriend's SUV and crashed it on Main Street Thursday night.

When a good samaritan stopped to help -- police say two passengers from the SUV jumped in the good samaritan's car and took off. Those suspects have been identified as Tina Maier and Joshua Kras -- both of Bennington. But police say they did not make it very far crashing into the baseball field at a nearby school.

All three suspects face multiple charges.
