Good morning from the WBRC.com digital desk! Here are some of the stories and segments you'll see this morning on Good Day Alabama:

A Georgia woman’s quick thinking helped her survive a carjacking in Avondale over the weekend. Ashleigh Booher says that she crashed her car into a cab after being forced to drive by two men who approached her with a gun.

Birmingham police are still searching for the last suspect in a bank robbery. Police confirmed that Reginald Dwayne Brown was arrested and charged in connection to a robbery at America’s First Credit Union in Roebuck. Investigators are still searching for Andre Dion Brown.

A memorial service scheduled for Trenton James Way, the gas station clerk killed in Bessemer, will be rescheduled due to weather concerns. Family and friends will now meet Christmas Eve night to remember Way.
