Manual transmission stymies Mass. car thievesJanuary 16, 2014 @ 5:04 am
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A trio of would-be Massachusetts car thieves had to hit the brakes on their plan because none of them knew how to drive a stick.
Police in Springfield say the men pulled a knife on a food delivery driver Tuesday night and demanded the grub and his keys. But then they noticed the car had a manual transmission.
Sgt. John Delaney tells The Republican newspaper ( http://bit.ly/1mahyod) the thieves argued among themselves then ran down the street with their ill-gotten dinner.
The driver was not seriously hurt. There have been no arrests.
