Police hunt taxi driver who dragged unconscious passenger out of his cab and left him lying senseless in the middle … – Daily Mail
This is the bizarre moment a taxi driver pulls an unconscious man out of his car and leaves him prone in the middle of a London street.
The footage begins with the car pulling over by the pavement and the smartly-dressed driver getting out to pull his worse-for-wear customer through the passenger door.
The man struck his head on the vehicle as he was dragged out of by his feet and was found by an off-duty policeman around 10 minutes later.
In an amazing twist, the driver, who appears to be aged in his 50s or 60s, returned to the scene in Fenchurch Place in the City of London while the man was being tended to and even spoke to the officer but did not reveal his connection to the incident.
City of London Police have released the footage and urged witnesses to come forward to identify the driver as they continue to hunt for him.
