it sound like it was longboarders fault because he was on the side of the road, not the sidewalk, and he was banging on the taxi, agitating the driver. they even showed footage of him doing it,
the vehicle looks like it is no worse for wear and
will likely see another day on toronto's streets.
despite what may or may not have transpired, intentionally
striking a person with a vehicle is an offence, and not one
that should be taken lightly.
i've shared many 'crazy cabbie' stories with other boarders over
the years. IMHO, cabs are, by far, the biggest menace on Toronto's
roads - to drivers, cyclists, boarders, and pedestrians alike.
i really hope there's a good showing of Boarded Peoples tomorrow.
i haven't stopped thinking about this all day. skate safe, skate smart.
