CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla.– A Charlotte County woman was taking a Lyft to Fort Myers on Monday to pickup her vehicle up from the shop with her two children.
She said her Lyft driver stopped for gas shortly after picking her up. After filling up his vehicle, they drove on the highway for less than 10 minutes.
The woman said the driver claimed he needed to stop at his house to get a different credit card so he could buy more gas.
