Sydney, Sept 9: A post by Sascha Pangallo on social networking site Facebook has become viral. The lady is the latest victim of app-based taxi drivers. This time, it was a driver working with Uber.

The world was shocked to know the reason(s) behind the violent attitude of the driver, who has been identified as Paul.

In her Facebook post, Sascha wrote that Paul refused to put her destination into the GPS and requested for directions. Sascha, who was attending an important call on her mobile phone, guided the driver.

Despite all support from Sascha, the driver started showing tantrums at her. She was taken aback when Paul allegedly dared to grab her and dragged her out of the car.

However, when the driver realised that some onlookers witnessed the entire incident, he stormed back to the driver seat and tried to flee the scene.

Sascha, who somehow managed to grab her belongings from the car, was thrown to the ground and her leg was run over by the car.

She posted her picture on Facebook stating about her ordeals. She also asserted that she will never hire Uber taxi in future.
