NYC cab driver drags 78-year-old woman out of car

An elderly woman was thrown out of a taxi in Brooklyn, New York City, by a driver whom she alleges stole her phone.

The woman, 78, says that the incident occurred after the driver of an Access-A-Ride vehicle, a transport service for people with disabilities, dropped her off at a different location than one she requested.

Footage shows the woman on the floor asking a bystander to call the police and saying "he robbed my phone."

New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission is aware of the footage and cooperating with the NYPD.
