In March, two teenage girls tried to carjack a DC Uber Eats driver and ended up killing him.
The two teens asked the driver for a ride, but they had planned on carjacking him, and things went out of control. Everything was caught on camera. In the video, Mohammad Anwar, 66, stood on the side of his car and tried to get one of the teens out of the driver seat. You can see the other teen in the passenger seat.
At one point, he screams, “they’re thieves,” “that’s my car!” Moments later, the driver’s door opened, but Anwar was hanging off the car as it sped off. The car sideswiped a metal barrier and light pole, which caused the driver’s door to slam into Anwar’s body, which killed him. The two teens tried to flee the scene but were detained by two National Guardsmen who were in the area.
The footage is graphic. Take a look, or check out a still image:
