In Monroe County, PA, a man attempted to hijack a driver’s ed car in the middle of a lesson, attempted being the operative word here. At the time, the instructor and two student drivers were inside the vehicle – one of whom was behind the wheel. When the man approached the vehicle, he reached for the steering wheel and demanded, “give me your car,” simultaneously using his other hand to rummage around sinisterly in his fanny pack [or gut pack, depending on your personal stance on the if-you-rock-it-in-the-front-is-it-still-a-fanny-pack debate]. The instructor wisely advised the student to floor it, and all occupants managed to escape the incident unharmed.
The “would-be car jacker” is still at large, however, and police have released a description of the suspect in hopes of someone identifying him. Accordingly, the suspect is a white male around 50 years old with a slight Italian or Middle Eastern accent, about 5’8″ tall, and approximately 200 lbs. He is also an epic failure.
