A Newry man has been taken into hospital today after he jumped out of a moving Clanrye Taxi in order to stop conversing with the driver.
The 28 year-old man who ordered the taxi for the short journey from Derrybeg to the Warrenpoint Road is in Daisy Hill and is described as being in a ‘serious but stable’ condition.
The young man told Newry Spud:
“I couldn’t take it anymore. We started with the casual ‘well boy, how’s it going?’ but then the driver started to talk about how the town is overrun with Polish people and how is wife is being a bitch.
I saw my opportunity when the car was at around 30mph and I fucking jumped straight out onto moving traffic to escape him. I’m lucky to be alive.”
