Canadian Parking Fail

This Canadian parking fail is not photoshopped

A man and woman from Ottawa hopped in a cab near Airport Parkway. They had no clue that they were about to live through something you’d see in a GTA 4 crash compilation.

Unfortunately the cause wasn’t a high speed police pursuit, or a chase involving the KGB.  Their taxi driver simply had a seizure.

The 36-year-old man driving the taxi had just picked up two people — a 42-year-old woman and a 30-year-old man — on Sawmill Private near the Airport Parkway and Heron Road minutes before the crash. His passengers reported to paramedics that he went into a seizure when he approached Brookfield Road just metres away, slammed his foot down on the gas pedal, and then accelerated onto Junction Avenue.

Since the driver’s foot was smashed on the gas pedal, they did more then give someone’s BMW a little fender bender. The taxi smashed through two trees and slammed the Beamer so hard that it landed on it’s roof. The cab then landed on top with it’s tires still spinning. Neighbors actually thought it was a house fire.

My favorite part of this story is how completely badass these Canadians are.

  • The woman passenger had cuts on her face but refused to go to the hospital
  • The male passenger had gashes on his leg but walked it off
  • A bystander who busted out the car window to help them, was bloody but fine
  • The owner of the BMW took motherfucking shrapnel to the face when the cab exploded but took it like a boss

The only person who needed a trip to the hospital was the cabby, but that’s probably because he just had a seizure.

Anyone else have this song in their head now?
