Three California women say they reserved an Uber ride recently in the Sacramento area that turned into one of the most frightening experiences of their lives.
According to KTXL, Theadora Fuerstenberg, Angela O’Neal and Katherine Vallaire used the ride-hailing app about a month ago.
Fuerstenberg told the news station that their driver constantly threatened the lives of everyone in the vehicle.
“He would swerve in and out and then as he was doing this he would say, ‘We’re all going to die now,'” she said.
O’Neal said she was able to contact authorities from the back seat and after about 25 minutes, the driver pulled off of the highway and the doors unlocked.
In response to the complaint, Uber stated that the individual is no longer allowed to drive for the service.
“The disturbing behavior the riders reported will not be tolerated,” the company wrote. “We removed this driver’s access to the app shortly after we learned of the incident and stand ready to work with police.”
