Lyft driver Tenicia Bennet was viciously attacked during a road rage incident, according to CBS. The assault was caught on video and shared on social media.
“I can’t watch it, no. I can’t watch it — see myself being dragged across a gas station for no reason,” she said. “I just would never have thought that I would experience something like that."
Bennett says she had just dropped a customer off and was refueling her car when two women jumped out of a car and began beating her. The assailants also stole Bennet's wallet, phone, and rent money.
The car the attackers emerged from had an Uber sticker, but Uber says the driver registered with that car has not been an employee for years.
“There is no place for such violence in our society. Our thoughts are with Tenicia as she recovers from this terrible ordeal. We stand ready to assist law enforcement," said Lyft in an official statement.
The suspects have not yet been arrested, but the LAPD has a lead on suspects. Bennett is not sure if she will return to work with Lyft.
"I can't work, I can't do Lyft. It traumatized me," she said. "They took my stuff, they have all my information. What do I do?"
