NS. Louis (KMOV.com)-A GoFundMe The account provides new details of a deadly encounter between a Rakıd cab driver and passengers early Wednesday morning. The account identifies the driver as Jason Brock and says he is paralyzed in the hospital’s intensive care unit.
At the time, the Missouri Highway Patrol said there was a quarrel inside the cab. According to the fundraiser, passengers grabbed the block’s neck, grabbed the steering wheel and said, “It’s a good day to die.”
On Wednesday, a shooting and crash closed part of Interstate Highway 55 in southern St. Louis County for several hours.
The GoFundMe page states that Brock was unable to shake off the attacker, so he grabbed his pistol and shot the man. However, it is written that Brock accidentally shot his neck, amputated his spinal cord, and was paralyzed.
Taxi driver John Godpower told News 4 that there was once a dangerous passenger pulling a weapon.
“He had a gun. We stopped halfway and I got a gun from him. I was very lucky to get out of it,” he said.
A video shot about 800 meters from the 64 Big Bend exit to the west shows Uber driver Medeya Espina driving in the left lane. As she turns the corner, the headlights of the oncoming car enter the frame and immediately approach the car.
Medeya Espina has been an Uber driver for about four years. Last month she had a dangerous encounter with a reverse driver on the I-64 near Big Bend. She said she turned and missed an oncoming car in the last second.
“And my past experience was approaching a head-on collision with a driver, which made my life more scary,” she said.
Espina said he has never seen so many drivers ignoring traffic lights and stop signs, putting other drivers at risk. She said her mind was directed at Lacreed cab driver Jason Brock and his family. Because of her experience and the experience of other drivers, she decided to find another way to make a living.
