A woman accidentally stole a car, and then returned it with fuel money and a sorry note.

It all started when Erin Hatzi’s husband noticed that her car - a red Subaru - was missing from their driveway.

After reviewing the security tape Hatzi posted the video of the car theft onto Facebook - asking friends to help her find it.

Earlier in the evening, a woman from the same neighbourhood in Portland, Oregon, sent her friend to pick up her red Subaru. However, her friend accidentally collected Hatzi’s car instead. After realising that the car was not hers she returned it with fuel money and a sorry note.

It read:

Hello, so sorry I stole your car. I sent my friend with my key to pick up my red Subaru at 7802 SE Woodstock and she came back with your car. I did not see the car until this morning and I said, 'that is not my car.There is some cash for gas and I more than apologize for the shock and upset this must have caused you. If you need to speak further, with me, I am ******* and my number is ..........So so sorry for this mistake.

If you’re wondering how the woman got into the car, police told her that older Subaru keys are interchangeable.
