Carjackers Can't Drive Stick: Seattle Trio Foil Their Own Plot

By    |   Tuesday, 24 Jun 2014 06:35 PM

Three would-be carjackers who couldn't drive a stick shift foiled their own plot to steal a 70-year-old woman's car over the weekend in Seattle.

"I got a five speed in there," Nancy Frederickson said of her Kia to KIRO-TV. "They couldn't figure out how to get it going!"

Frederickson said she was getting something from the trunk of the vehicle late Saturday afternoon when she heard someone demanding her keys. She told the television station she thought it was a joke at first, until she saw a gun pointed at her by a teenager wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

The teenagers reportedly grabbed the keys after she dropped them and stood by her vehicle as the three tried to drive the car away. Surveillance video shows the suspects fleeing the scene after they realized none of them knew how to drive a manual transmission and panicked.

Police collected evidence from the car and surveillance video from a security camera across the street shows the carjackers running away.

"It was quite an interesting day," Frederickson said. "Let's put it that way."

Frederickson told the TV station she can laugh about it now, which is good, because that seems to be what everyone else is doing, too.
