What took ya so long?
— Getaway Driver to the crew

The Getaway driver (also known as the Local Yokel) is an unnamed, minor character in Grand Theft Auto V. He serves as the getaway driver for Michael Townley, Trevor Philips, and Brad Snider when they rob a cash depot in North Yankton.

Events of GTA V

The driver was responsible for helping the crew escape while pulling an ill-fated heist at the Bobcat Security cash depot in 2004. He was waiting just outside the depot's rear entrance in a Rancher XL.

Aww fuck! How'd that happen?
— Getaway Driver when the police appear and begin to chase the car

As they started driving away, a Police Roadcruiser appeared behind them in hot pursuit, shooting at the car. The driver was shot in the head during the police chase, and Michael pushed his lifeless body out of the vehicle before taking the wheel.[1]

Mission Appearances



  • In a deleted line during the getaway cutscene, Trevor comments on the driver's death by saying "You buy cheap", pointing out the driver's low experience and low cost which led to his fate.[2]
  • He is referred to by Michael as "Local Yokel"[3] meaning that he likely never pulled a score with Trevor, Michael and Brad before.
  • It is likely that Brad disliked him, since he calls him a "dick" after his death.[4]
