ASTORIA, Queens — A Lyft passenger pummeled his driver in Queens and the entire assault was caught on a dash camera.

Driver Eduardo Madiedo had just one thing on his mind as he was beaten.

“I was just trying to pull over and stop the car, and get them out of my vehicle without hurting someone else or hitting someone else or a pedestrian,” he said.

Madiedo managed to do just that, but not without suffering one final insult and attack.

“I was just looking to make sure he left and I guess he saw me looking and turned around,” he said. “He called me a bunch of racial slurs, a Mexican and go back to my country, and since my window was open, he swung at me again.”

It all happened at the end of a strange ride where he picked up a mother and her adult son to go to Mount Saint Hospital in Queens. The son was clearly in some sort of distress laying on his mother’s lap and moaning.
