(KMOV.com) – Three teen carjackers were forced to find another way out when they could not drive the vehicle they were attempting to steal.

Nancy Federickson was getting something out of the trunk of her car when three teens put a gun to her face and demanded her keys.

But once the carjackers got inside the car, none of them knew how to drive it because it was a five-speed vehicle.

Surveillance video captured the panicked teens as they ran from the scene.

Police collected fingerprints from the gear shift and hope it will lead them to an arrest.
