Thursday, November 20th, 2014 Auto Liability Weird

Monday night work crews returned to the spot where a man used to pulling shots of espresso wound up pulling two people from a wrecked taxi. In Manhattan, the taxi drove over a manhole at the very moment it exploded! "Once I seen what happened I just did what came naturally," said Bernard Vickers, a Starbucks barista. "The manhole cover actually came up and it came up under the cab. It flattened the front tire and put a dent in the front corner of the car." It happened at 6:30 Monday morning in front of a Starbucks at 44th and Lexington.
