Police Offer Tips To Ride-Share Customers After OSU Student Got Into Wrong Car

Jan 21, 2017


Columbus and Ohio State University police are offering safety tips for ride-share consumers after a student apparently got into the wrong car on January 13.

Tips include following the vehicle on GPS; making sure the vehicle and driver match the information on the order; and not riding in the front seat. Police say the female student got into a car she thought was the one she ordered. The male driver made unwanted advances toward her and the woman ran to safety. Police received similar reports last September.
