This Iranian refugee took an NFL player on a 500-mile Uber ride

An NFL player recently missed a connecting flight at Chicago’s O’Hare airport and needed a way to get to Buffalo, N.Y., to work out with his new team, the Bills. So he got into an Uber around 10 p.m. and was driven over 500 miles — and he made it to the training facility by his 7 a.m. deadline. But that’s not the most noteworthy part of the story.

Initially the Bills cornerback, Shareece Wright, made news for hiring the long-distance and expensive — $632.08, plus a $300 tip — driver. But now his driver is making news: Hadi Abdollahian, a 26-year-old from Iran who moved to Chicago as a refugee in 2013.
