Keith Avila, who had barely surpassed his one-month mark with Uber, picked up two women and a girl from Oak Park with the intention of taking them to a hotel in Elk Grove.
The ride, which figured to net Avila less than $8, was supposed to be a short one.
“It was about 13 minutes. Something like that. I’m going off memory but about 13 minutes,” he recalled.
What ensued was anything but a routine Uber fare.
Avila said the girl who rode next to him in the front seat appeared to be about 12 years old and was dressed in attire that was not age appropriate.
“She had a really short skirt,” he described. “So, you could see all her legs, and it struck me as odd because she was so young and she was dressing like that.”
Two women rode in the back. Elk Grove police identified them as 25-year-old Destiny Pettway and 31-year-old Maria Westley.
