The man who was carjacked last Thursday by the Tsarnaev brothers described a terrifying ride, in which he feared for his life as the Boston bombing suspects talked about girls and cars.
In an exclusive interview with the Boston Globe, the man -- identified only as 26-year-old Danny -- gave his first account of the carjacking and the trio's tense trek through Brighton, Watertown and Cambridge.
Danny's nightmare began when Tamerlan Tsarnaev -- the suspect who was later killed during a shootout with police -- approached his Mercedes and let himself in. So began a long drive that ended at a gas station, when Danny made a split-second decision to flee his car while the brothers were distracted.
When the younger brother, Dzhokhar, was forced to go inside the Shell Food Mart to pay, older brother Tamerlan put his gun in the door pocket to fiddle with a navigation device -- letting his guard down briefly after a night on the run. Danny then did what he had been rehearsing in his head. In a flash, he unbuckled his seat belt, opened the door, stepped through, slammed it behind, and sprinted off at an angle that would be a hard shot for any marksman.
The brother who was captured last Friday, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was transferred this morning from a hospital to a prison in Fort Devens, Mass. He was charged on Monday in the April 15 bombing, which killed three and wounded 264.
