Two individuals were taken away in separate ambulances. The driver of the Soo Yellow Cab, according to witnesses, appeared to be in potential medical distress when he plowed into a parked car in the front yard of a home on Farwell Terrace.
The witnesses further shared that the woman passenger was supposed to be going to the Group Health Clinic and was expecting the cab driver to turn right onto 2nd line from Farwell Terrace. According to information shared by people following along behind the cab, it appeared that the cab driver hesitated, and instead of turning right onto 2nd Line, he went straight ahead picking up speed. “The car came speeding along here (the front yard at Farwell Terrace) shared Crystal Laudadio. “The woman was sitting in the front passenger seat.”
Crystal Laudadio, who is a nurse, was first on scene and offered medical support to both the cab driver and the passenger. Witnesses alerted 911 very quickly.
Laudadio spoke with Saultonline and expressed that a woman carrying a child had walked through the yard seconds before it happened . The dark coloured vehicle that can be seen in the pictures in front of the yellow cab, was actually parked 30 feet into the front yard of the home where the accident took place.
Witnesses in the immediate vicinity were all shaken from the explosive sound and strength of the impact.
The well being of the victims involved in this horrific accident is not known at this time.
