Partying at West Virginia University Results in $1600 Uber Ride

Kenneth Bachman, 20, ordered an Uber XL from Morgantown, West Virginia, all the way to his Sewell, New Jersey, home on Friday.

Instead, he woke up in the passenger seat of a 2011 Toyota Sienna minivan next to an Uber driver that was taking him home.

CBS Philadelphia reported Bachman blacking out after hiring the vehicle service after having partied with friends in Morgantown near the campus of West Virginia University last Friday.

Like, where he lives. That said, the Gloucester County resident conceded he knew he 'just wanted to go home'.

"I just woke up", Bachman told NJ Advance Media in a phone interview. The tab for the ride came out to a whopping $1,635.93.

"Afterwards I had it fully sink in", Bachman told the news site.

Rain, thunderstorms early Thursday
By sunset, any leftover showers or drizzle moves away and we'll usher in a drier and cooler night for Thursday into Friday . Temperatures will be similar compared to what we got yesterday; highs will boost to the 50s in the lower elevations.

Obviously, this accidental life choice has made Kenneth quite the hero of the drunken regrets world, and speaking on the matter he said simply, "I was just like... that's insane!".

A $3.94 base fare, a $2.35 booking fee, $696.95 for distance, $115.90 for time.

But when his driver woke him up two hours into the more than 300-mile journey to New Jersey, Bachman said he didn't know what was happening or who the driver was. Then blacked out after he got into the auto.

Bachmann countered that he didn't want to just be left on the side of the road.

On top of that, the Uber driver didn't have money for tolls and was fined at every toll booth. He also had to pay for tolls because the driver didn't have cash.

One too many tequila shots later and Kenneth decided it was time to hail a ride to a local hotel, but his fingers apparently had other ideas and, following a classic cab blackout, he came to realising he was en route back to New Jersey - five hours away.
