Police say post about alleged Uber sex trafficking was a misunderstanding

A woman sparked panic after claiming in a Facebook post that went viral that she was nearly kidnapped by a sex trafficker after getting in the wrong car. Emmy Hurley claimed she got into a wrong Uber and the driver, a woman, drove around erratically and refused to stop when asked. She later suspected the driver was probably a sex traffic worker. Cops dismissed the incident as a misunderstanding.

Steps inside wrong Uber, immediately assumes she's being sold as a sex slave. Yeah, that's a completely healthy conclusion to what's going on.

Weird story, but this is the type of hysteria we can expect from the #Metoo era. Pro tip, you should probably check if you’re climbing in the correct Uber anyway, especially at a place where there may be many Uber pickups like say... an airport.
