The carjacking occurred at the fast-food restaurant at the intersection of Highway 463 and Galleria Parkway around 9:00 Tuesday morning.

They were making a turn against the light at Highway 463, and were hit by another car.

Master Sergeant Kevin Newman of the Madison Police Department says, "The Burger King Manager was leaving with a bank deposit when she was carjacked in the parking lot.   One of the men was armed."

After the wreck, both men fled into a wooded area, but they were caught as they tried to elude police.

Graham is charged with armed carjacking. 

A 15-Year-Old in custody is not being identified.
