Instead, she was held at gunpoint and driven to New Jersey, where two men were waiting, and was gang raped, according to Turkos. The entire trip took 80 minutes.
Now Turkos is suing Lyft in Superior Court in San Francisco, where the company is based. Turkos, now 31, is not seeking money, but wants the company to change its safety policies and do a better job vetting drivers. She's also suing the NYPD over inadequate and poorly trained staff at the Special Victims Unit that deals with rape reports. That case is still pending.
