Uber/Lyft Auto Accidents
Grand Theft Uber
Police are looking for a group of juveniles who they say stole a 73 year old Lyft drivers vehicle then crashed it into an occupied school bus the very next day.
Columbus Police said the alleged grand theft auto happened on April 11th in the 1500 block of Stonegate Square North.
At approximately 2:30 p.m, police said the 73 year old woman was hired to pick up her fares. When she showed up the juveniles, four boys and one girl, “ripped” her from her 2015 silver Chevy.
Police stated the woman pleaded with the teens. One tee reportedly said “You’re the chosen one for the day.” The woman sought help at a neighboring residence and was able to call 911.
Police said the three juveniles fled the crash. One juvenile, a girl, came back to the scene. Police say they are still searching for the others.
