As if San Francisco's cab industry didn't have it rough enough, with plummeting use of their service making national headlines, last night a driver crashed into Yellow Cab's Mississippi Street parking lot.
According to San Francisco Police Department spokesperson Officer Gordon Shyy, police and the San Francisco Fire Department were called to the scene of a traffic collision near Texas and 25th Streets.
Shyy says that when officers and the SFFD arrived, they discovered that a car had careened "over an embankment at the top of Texas and down towards the Yellow Cab lot."
The Yellow Cab lot is located at 1200 Mississippi Street, just a steep hill away from the scene of the initial vehicular mishap.
Speaking with KRON4, SFPD Sgt. Frank Harrell had more details on the crash, saying that “the car was traveling at a high rate of speed down Dakota" when the driver missed the turn at 25th, then "went over the embankment and ended up where it is now."
According to Shyy, the male driver was traveling solo, and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital. Though he (and his car) fell as far as 300 feet, he only suffered minor injuries and is expected to survive.
