Criminal Tip #87,623: Don't Stab The Driver While He's, You Know, Driving

Los Angeles, CA

Panic and stupidity make you do funny things. Scream, run in circles, stab your cab driver and die in the resulting car crash.

Two women were killed in a crash at Medford and Fishburn in East Los Angeles after allegedly stabbing their cab driver, who survived. Seems he was dropping them off at the Ramona Gardens housing project when a man threatened him with a gun. Not waiting to find out whether it was actually loaded, he took off with the women still in the back.

That's when they stabbed him.

Stab the driver of a speeding vehicle? That's crazy talk! Why would someone do something so incredibly stupid? You'd think they were setting him up to get robbed or something. I mean, it's not like he had a lot of cash on him or...

Oh.

Anyway, he's in the hospital in stable condition. Relative to the state of "dead" that puts him ahead of the game.

They've gotta be in on it.

Technically, the women are in "stable" condition too.
