EUGENE, Ore. -- An Uber driver says her car was vandalized and she was beaten up at the Eugene riot.

So far from what we've learned, there were two cars destroyed during this riot.

Mina Ducker was finishing up the end of her shift when she drove into what turned into her worst nightmare.

She said rioters surrounded her car when she was trying to take an alternate route to get her passengers to their destination.

As they sat in her car, the rioters blocked the vehicle at every angle and when she tried to tell them to get out of her way, they broke her back car window.

At that point, she said her passengers were so scared they jumped out of her car and ran away. As for Ducker, she had to stay to defend her car and herself.

She said once she got out she tried to stop the rioter who broke her window, and she was badly beaten.

Ducker described how she was feeling: "Shocked, scared, in pain, there is no justification for hurting innocent people for something that didn't even happen in this city. They just made it worse."

She said she was able to drive away from the scene shortly after getting beaten up and went home. But she said once she got home she was in so much pain she collapsed onto her driveway and her roommates called 911. Ducker is now recovering at home with minor injuries.
