Clare Dunn emotionally recounts night she was assaulted by her Lyft Driver
According to an incident report, Dunn was assaulted during the early morning hours of June 26 at the hands of her Lyft driver, someone she remembers as a “6’2″-6’3″ 250 lb. man.” “I had that intuition that something was wrong, and I ignored it,” Dunn, 34, tells in her first interview about the assault that left her bloody and bruised. “We were barreling towards the interstate and I spoke up and was like, ‘Hey, that was my turn. Where are you going? You need to take the next right turn,'” remembers Dunn. She says the driver became increasingly agitated. “He was screaming at me. I couldn’t really make it out — his English wasn’t the best. And I just knew in that moment that I wasn’t going to get on that interstate with him. I wasn’t going to go quietly where he wanted to take me. And I think he realized maybe this girl was going to be more trouble than she’s worth.” And while Dunn still doesn’t know why the driver ultimately made the decision to pull the car over a mile away from her house, he eventually did. Yet her nightmare was just beginning. “Before I could even get my shoes off or get my phone to try and call 911, he grabbed me by the collar, ripped me out of the backseat and slammed me face-first down into a ditch,” Dunn remembers. “Somehow in the scuffle, I thought I called 911, but I didn’t even get the number right. But it was a miracle. They called me back. And when I came to, I was screaming, and I saw headlights. He ended up just leaving me alone at that point and took off.” Read the full story HERE.
