In a statement, Comfort DelGro’s Group Corporate Communications Officer Tammy Tan said the CityCab taxi driver who was captured on video for reversing into a parked car at Redhill had been sacked.
The accident happened in a carpark at Redhill. The dramatic footage showed the reversing taxi accelerate rapidly before hitting a stationary car. The video went viral after it was posted online on 4 April 2016.
Ms Tan claimed that the driver stopped his taxi further down the road before returning to the scene of the incident to pass his particulars to a shop owner who knew the car’s owner.
“That was not captured in the footage,” she said.
“We are thankful that no one was injured in this incident and are assisting the owner of the parked vehicle with all repairs.”
