Description: Cash Cab Carjacked

Cash Cab Carjacked - New York, NY


The cameras were rolling as America witnessed a brutal crime during Cash Cab After Dark.  While filming his wildly popular show, Cash Cab host Ben Bailey was carjacked near the corner of 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue.  In a flash, the show turned from light hearted fun into a gruesome scene which left Bailey hospitalized.  During a Street Shout Out, Ben was pistol whipped as he was yanked from the driver’s seat.  After severely beating Ben, the thieves took off, not realizing they were being filmed the entire time.  Ironically, the question being asked was “What crime began in the 1980’s that involved pulling a driver from their vehicle and then stealing the car?”
