Yes, time for another case of a carjacker not knowing how to drive manual. Wonder how many of these we will see this year.

"He couldn't get the car moving," Seattle Police Detective Patrick Michaud said today. "He gets into the car, he grinds the gears for a little bit, gets it to roll a little bit, but realizes he's not able to drive it away. Then he ditches the car."
