In Seattle, three teenagers threatened a woman with guns to seize her car, but they couldn't.
The car had manual transmission and none of them could drive it.

When the 70-year-old woman, Nancy Fredrickson, was unloading her luggage from the trunk of her car on June 21, the three men pointed guns at her face.
They threatened her and got the key, and then they jumped in the car.
However... they were not able to move it.
They ran off in the end.

Fredrickson was crying when she called the 911.
After that, she laughed at them not knowing how to drive a stick shift.
"I didn't think that a stick shift would stave off a carjack. I'm glad that my car and I are not harmed," she said.

シアトルで3人の10代の男が女性を銃で脅し、車を強奪しようとしたが未遂に終わった。車はマニュアル車で、容疑者たちは誰も運転の仕方を知らなかったのだ。

ナンシー・フレデリクソンさん(70)は21日、彼女の車のトランクから荷物を取り出していた時に、3人から銃を顔に突き付けられた。容疑者は車のキーを脅し取り、車に飛び乗ったが……動かすことができなかった。
結局3人は走って逃げて行ったという。

フレデリクソンさんは911番緊急通報をした時は泣いていたが、その後、マニュアル車の運転の仕方を知らない強盗を笑ったという。
「マニュアル車であることがカージャック防止になるなんてね。自分も車も無傷でよかった」
