A wild Uber ride resulted in two accidents, two passengers getting the living daylights scared out of them, and the driver being arrested. Let’s take a look at the video and talk about it.
Youtuber Mark from Mark’s Travel Time shared a great video all about this incident. Take a look at his video and scroll to the video transcript if you prefer to read.

This video you’re about to see came from a couple of sources. It was originally posted on Facebook, the Facebook page of one of the passengers, I believe John Murray, and then it was picked up by CNN. I see MSN picked it up and a few other sources. CNN is the one that we’re going to be watching here.
It all began with an accident…
This is absolutely unbelievable. It started with a driver getting rear-ended. Rather than calling the police or doing whatever he should have done, he started chasing the guy. The passengers in the back were pleading to get out of the car, and the result was another accident and the arrest of the driver. Let’s take a look.
Our Top Tips for Drivers:
I can’t imagine what it would be like to be a passenger in this vehicle. Now I’m hoping that all of the drivers that watch my channel would never do such a thing. Don’t chase after someone that hits you, call the police, if you have your cameras, and by the way, I’ll be doing review of a dash cam very shortly on this channel, if you have a camera, it should or maybe can possibly pick up the license plate and the make and model of the vehicle, but whatever you do, don’t go chasing the other vehicle. Now let’s take a look at the results of this.
The driver was arrested!
It says here is Richmond police say they have arrested the driver. Someone else hit him, he ends up getting arrested. 38 year old, let’s see if I can get this name right, Olufemi S. Olomola. So he is the one that ended up getting arrested, and it says here he was charged with reckless driving, felony hit and run, and two counts of abduction.
This is what insurance and dash cars are for!
I’m going to guess a good attorney can probably deal those charges down, but it’s going to cost some money. He just lost his job. Think of all the things that just happened because this driver lost his temper. Nobody wants to get hit, but you know what?
That’s what insurance is for. He had passengers in the car. So Uber’s insurance was in effect, it was in place. I know that there is a deductible. That’s a chance that we take when we drive a car. But man, I would rather have a dented rear bumper than be spending the next few nights in jail and then have to go to court for probably months and months.
I would love to hear what you think of this one. Please leave your comments down below, like and share the videos.
