Carjackers Fought Off By Uber Driver


Three police reports for carjacking were made in one night this week in San Francisco. One of these was from an Uber driver, who wished to remain anonymous. Three people got into his car and threatened him at gunpoint. One exited the vehicle and tried to forcibly eject the driver from the car, but he managed to get back in and drive off. “He almost had me out and I jumped back in and I started to make the turn.

Police in the bay area are confident that all three attempts that night were connected.
