2 men carjack Lyft driver, then die after crashing vehicle
Two men allegedly carjacked a Lyft driver, then crashed the stolen vehicle into some trees.

ST. CLOUD, Minn. - Two men are dead after crashing a vehicle they allegedly stole from a Lyft driver overnight in St. Cloud, according to Sherburne County authorities.

Officers from the St. Cloud Police Department were called around 1 a.m. Tuesday to the 2300 block of Minnesota Boulevard Southeast and met with the victim, a 46-year-old Lyft driver from St. Cloud.

The victim told police he picked up a ride request on the 600 block of Lincoln Avenue Southeast and two men got in his vehicle. He drove them around for a bit but they did not appear to know where they were going.

The driver stopped the vehicle and was grabbed by one of the men, who pulled him backwards and threatened to kill him. He got out of his vehicle and the two men took off with the car at a high rate of speed, heading west on Minnesota Boulevard.

Minutes later, about 1:15 a.m., a Sherburne County deputy who was parked along River Road that runs along the Mississippi River southeast of the city clocked a vehicle going about 112 mph.

As the deputy tried to catch up to the vehicle, he approached a curve in the road and saw and smelled smoke and vehicle wreckage.
The victim said eventually one of the men sitting in the backseat grabbed the steering wheel, nearly veering the vehicle off the road, police say.

A Sherburne County deputy was parked on the side of the road and saw the vehicle speed past him, clocking it at 112 mph, as it drove by. The deputy tried to catch up to the vehicle but eventually came to a curve in the road and saw smoke.

The vehicle had crashed into trees on the side of County Road 8, ejecting one of the men. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The second man in the vehicle was taken to St. Cloud Hospital, where he later died.

The investigation is ongoing. The identities of those involved will be released at a later date.

From anything that belong to those thieves and their families
Let's see what assets two Uber carjackers might have. They probably both have outstanding child support due, most likely some restitution owed from a previous assault conviction and I would guess a couple judgements from non payment of rent.

Well does it count if it's the VEHICLE, or if it's YOU? Because technically He didn't have an accident...

Course he has no car either...
From what I have read on this message board in the past,and consider the source,either the vehicle itself,or you the driver,or a combination. Again,merely what I have read here in the past.

In commercial insurance it's usually claims against the policy holder. A strong wind knocks down a tree on your vehicle, a no fault accident in which your uninsured/underinsured is used, a car theft etc, it doesn't matter. Every time a claim is filed against your policy is bad. And switching commercial carriers doesn't help because they all want to see your loss runs for the past 39 months, some companies even longer.
