Caught on camera: Uber passengers beat driver in brutal attack in Las Vegas captured on video

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (KABC) — Warning: The video and images in this report may disturb some viewers.

A Las Vegas Uber driver recovers from her injuries after a shocking attack caught on video by a dashboard camera.

Victoria says she feels like nobody cares about her situation and wants help – and some justice.

The routine Uber exit turned into a brutal attack when several passengers began hitting Partridge. The attack lasted about 30 seconds, but it felt like an hour to Partridge.

“I started thinking that I’m going to die,” she said in an interview with KSNV-TV. “And when they left, I just prayed to God, thank God I’m alive.”

Partridge has been a driver for over a year with over 4,000 rides. This one started out as a pickup truck on Las Vegas’ famous Fremont Street.

When she saw there were seven people there, she told them that she couldn’t take them as she only had six seat belts.

“They say, ‘We’re not going. We must get to our destination. You’re our last chance, please, please, please,'” Partridge recalled.

After arguing for several minutes and opening and closing the doors, Partridge said she gave up and took the seven women with her. She’s grateful that her camera caught video of what happened next.

“She started hitting me from the side,” Partridge said. “Another girl walked out, opened my driver’s door, and she started hitting me from that side.”

She said the attackers also threw her phone, stole money from her tip jar and dented the side of her car.

Partridge filed a police report and contacted Uber as soon as she got home.

“I don’t know how long it’s going to be and if we’re going to get anything for it,” she said. “I don’t know, I’m so frustrated.”

She filed a complaint with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department on Sunday. Three days later she had heard nothing.

So a KSNV reporter called the police department and they said she could be proactive and come forward. As of Wednesday, they had not taken their video evidence.

“I didn’t go to the hospital because I didn’t have insurance,” says Partridge. “I was afraid. Didn’t know if Uber will cover it or not. Because if they don’t cover, I don’t know what the bill will be.”

Uber eventually responded to the driver and said the company would cover 100% of the car repairs and make a $5,000 donation to her account.

Uber also said it would assist the police investigation in any way it could.
