Archie Watkins is counting his blessings after surviving a carjacking at gunpoint this morning in Bucks County.

Watkins, 68, was leaving Diamond Check Cashing in Levittown, where he has worked for the past four years transporting money, and driving to another branch in Philadelphia when, near the intersections of Quarry and Quill Road, he was trapped.

"When I got to the stop sign a van pulled right in front of me, a car pulled up behind me, and a guy came out from behind the bushes," Watkins said.

At least three men yanked him out of his car and sped off with his car, his gun, and the money he was taking to the other branch, he said.

"This was the first time this happened to me," Watkins said.

"I never got robbed like that before, you wouldn’t expect it up there, it’s nice and quiet."
