Scary story. Also kind of strange. I wonder what the driver actually had planned. I mean, you don't normally tell your kidnapping victim where you are taking them. I heard.

Denver law professor Nancy Leong hailed an Uber to get to the airport Tuesday morning. She says she wound up on a ride to hell, "pounding on the windows."

    Can I leave a safety tip I learned?  Never sit in the front seat of the car even if the driver asks.  He can drive up to a wall so the door cannot be opened from your side, and you would completely be trapped.  :(

    This is terrifying. That poor woman. I am impressed that she had the composure to get another car, get on the plane, and continue her journey.
