    Truly awe-inspiring taxi wreck on Columbus Ave. last night, between 70th and 71st. Taken with my sister's camera (we'd just had dinner at Penang).

      We did not see it happen. Nobody seems to have been hurt, though -- there was an ambulance on scene but it didn't go tearing away quickly. I assume the one taxi slammed on its brakes (causing its rear end to lift slightly), and the other one just plowed into it at exactly the right speed, angle, and moment. Bizarre.

      That position is surely banned in some states though, OldhaMedia.

      So much for mom's old saying, "I can only go as fast as the car in front of me."

      yah, when the car brakes, its nose dives. it looks like both braked and nosedived at the same time. hence the wedge effect.

      Perhaps it's just me but I'm always sad when I hear the screech of tires without the satisfying sound of metal on metal.

      Always gotta love a taxi wreck (as long as no one gets hurt)

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Photohumorism, and we'd love to have your photo added to the group.

      I know it's not supposed to be funny but, c'mon.
