Carjacking fail: Teen suspects couldn't drive stick shift, police say

Two teens who attempted a carjacking were arrested in Tennessee after they had trouble driving a stick shift, according to police.

The suspects, who are both minors, took the car keys from a woman leaving a grocery store in Nashville on Tuesday, reports WKRN.

However, once they realized the car had a manual transmission and were unable to operate it, they ran away.

Officers captured them shortly after the incident.

The teenagers, ages 15 and 17, are also suspected of another attempted carjacking that occurred nearby earlier that day. That driver screamed and honked her horn when they tried to pull her out of the car, prompting them to run away, police said.
