Bumbling Thief Aborts Carjacking After Realizing He Can’t Drive Stick Shift

A man says he was held at gunpoint before young thieves tried and failed to steal his car. Dustin French believes he’s lucky to be alive and credits his own quick thinking. He’s also lucky to still have his car, thanks to its stick shift. French said he immediately asked what the thieves wanted him to do. “All I got out luckily were my keys and I said what do I do now. I was asking for orders,” French said. “He said get up and walk away. Face away and keep walking.”
