    Offbeat: Stick it to'em -- Oakland County carjackers foiled by stick shift

    by Bryn Mickle | The Flint Journal Thursday June 05, 2008, 7:42 PM


    Two Oakland County carjackers were forced to hoof it after the made a slight error in vehicle choice.

    The pair held up a pizza delivery woman in Oxford Township this week and made the woman get out of her car.

    But when they went to steal the car, the victim watched as the thieves rolled helplessly backward into a ditch.

    Turns out they couldn't drive a stick shift. The pair ran off on foot, but with those smarts it won't be long before they're behind bars.

    Yes indeed. And a vastly superior driving experience, in my opinion.
