Lyft driver 'attacked her 18-year-old passenger and ripped her HAIR out because she complained the music was too loud'
An 18-year-old in Pennsylvania has claimed she was attacked by her Lyft driver after she complained about the woman's distracted driving.
Helene Barrios shared images of apparent injuries and a clump of hair in her hand as she claimed she was hospitalized following the incident in Philadelphia on Sunday.
'THIS IS UNNACCEPTABLE(sic) I WAS ATTACKED BY YOUR UNPROFESSIONAL LYFT DRIVER! DO NOT GET INTO THIS DANGEROUS LADY'S CAR!' Barrios tweeted alongside an image of Jarita, the driver of a Nissan Sentra. 
'I have never experienced something like this before, I went to the hospital because I was bleeding & have abrasions. Please RETWEET I need justice.'

Barrios says she asked Jarita if she needed help with directions after she removed her cell phone from the mount on the front of the car. 
In a video shared by Barrios, the driver is heard saying they both have access to the same map via the Lyft app.
The passenger claims Jarita was 'loud and obnoxious' as she then took a phone call and declined to turn down music that Barrios says was so loud that she felt uncomfortable vibrations on her back.
Barrios tweeted that she was ordered out of the vehicle after complaining but when she started recording Jarita driving away, the Lyft driver stopped and got out.
Footage shows Jarita yelling at Barrios but it's unclear what happens next as she appears to grab the cell phone.
Barrios wrote: 'This is when she stopped reversing her car and stepped out, LIED on camera because she knew I was recording and said I told her to come out and fight me, she put herself in my personal space and tried to grab my phone and assaulted me.
'As I call someone over to call police she gets aggressive and wraps her arm around me trying to grab the phone and I push her off me and that's when she hots me and I start to defend myself.'

The rider claimed that the driver broke her brand new iPhone 11. She does not state how she obtained the marks on her face or explain the hair in her hand.
'Me and my family are still in shock with what happened and I will be in pain for the next few days,' Barrios tweeted. 'I need justice to be served I don't want her to hurt anybody else's child.' 
Barrios says in notes posted on Twitter that the ride-share driver had it in for her since the moment she showed up. She claims that she asked to put her bag in the trunk but Jarita refused, saying it was full, despite her later learning that it was empty.

Barrios also claims the driver complained about her moving the front seat back slightly for leg room, despite two males in the rear of the vehicle giving her the go-ahead to do so.
Barrios says she moved to the back seat after one man was dropped off at his destination and the trouble began after the second ride-sharer left the car.
Lyft said in a statement that they are supporting the ride-sharing customer, the driver has been banned and they are prepared to help police with an investigation.
'The incident described is troubling,' a spokesperson told DailyMail.com. 'Community safety is fundamental to Lyft, and we have been in touch with the rider to extend our support. We have permanently banned the driver from Lyft and stand ready to assist law enforcement.'
Lyft said the driver has been banned and that Barrios has their support as the incident is investigated
