(WFLA) A 19-year-old St. Petersburg, Florida woman says she was forced to jump from a moving car when her Uber driver refused to let her out. 

The driver, 30-year-old Destiny Green, is now facing felony kidnapping and false imprisonment charges, according to Tallahassee police. 

Brooke Adkins goes to college in Tallahassee and called the frightening encounter the first time she's ever feared for her life. 

"I went into survival mode so quick," she explained. 

Adkins says she hopped into an Uber during the early hours of Wednesday morning after a night out with friends, only to find the driver wouldn't let her out. 

"I was far," Adkins recounted. "I got 25-30 minutes away and I was like, 'where are you taking me?'"
