  1. Wow… How did that happen? Did maybe the wall cut in front of the driver? Hmmmm

  2. yawn yawn says:

    Too many older drivers on the road for extended hours. If you feel tired, stay put, park up and get a nap.

  3. Prayerful says:

    53 years is old? Wonder how old yawn yawn is?

    HOPE DRIVER WAS OK, MAYBE SHAKEN UP. New car needed. Maybe a Permit will be for sale soon!

  5. BERMUDIAN says:

    he shoulda been payin attention! old taxi drivers are so pokey!

  6. Taxi's says:

    Taxi’s are the worst drivers. If they ain’t going over the line, slamming on breaks, and going slow as hell, they’re hitting walls, containers, and just about anything stationary.

    You would think the more time one spends driving would make them a better driver but NOPE! Not our Taxi drivers.

    WOW…..52 is considered old????

    At any rate..sticking to the article at hand (not his age or that he may have needed a nap or is pokey)I hope the driver is okay and thankfully he only suffered minor injuries as it could have been potentially a lot worse….

  8. Opressed says:

    Again, we MUST put the blame squarely on the shoulders of docb for allowing these massive vehicles on the road. He brought his American mentality here with him, gotta have a huge car, even if you live in a slum.
