A Chicago Lyft driver is recovering in hospital, after being hit by his car. . . and then beaten up for not retreating from the gunfire fast enough.
MTO News learned that two women ordered a Lyft to pick them up near Chicago’s notorious O Block neighborhood. The Lyft driver arrived, and the two women got into the car.
The women asked the driver to stop immediately, but the Lyft driver – known to MTO News – started fiddling with his phone.
That’s when, a group of men pulled up beside Lyft and shot it up. The driver was initially stunned and just stood still. The passengers immediately realized what had happened and started yelling at the driver to leave.
The frightened Lyft driver eventually drove away – and fortunately no one was shot.
But the violence doesn’t end there. When the Lyft driver dropped off passengers at their destination – another convertible in Chicago – he was greeted by a group of angry men. MTO News learned that while aboard the Lyft, passengers texted men in their neighborhood, telling them the Lyft driver wasn’t fast enough – and nearly killed them.
When the women arrived at their place, a group of angry men pulled the Lyft driver out of the car and beat him for putting the women in danger.
