Video shows driver robbed while in San Francisco traffic

SAN FRANCISCO -- A driver captured video of a brazen robbery while driving through traffic in San Francisco on Friday afternoon.

The driver, Alex, says he was about to get on an onramp, heading east on I-80 around 4:30 p.m. There, he witnessed someone jump out of a Honda Accord and smash a window of a Prius in front of him.

The thief grabbed a bag and drove off.

ABC7's Dion Lim spoke to the victims of the robbery, a husband and wife, who are from Iran.

Ben says he and his wife, Masha, are real estate photographers and were on a shoot near Dolores Park.



Ben, who was in the passenger seat of the Prius, says his wife noticed someone following them after the shoot.
