May 19, 2013 In Pennsylvania township of Coolbaugh on 1:15 a.m. taxi Driver Michael West was believed to have lost control of his taxi when he suddenly crossed over the highway to collide head-on with a fire police van of the Coolbaugh Township Volunteer Fire Company . A witness said that he was speeding up at an excessive rate of speed as he was passing his truck on wet pavement. Then the driver side wheels lifted off as his Chrysler minivan swerved onto the path of the oncoming truck. 55 year old taxi driver West was killed and four emergency responders were hurt. Investigators believe the taxi which was carrying no passengers accidentally slid into the path of the oncoming Coolbaugh Township fire police van. Four volunteer firefighters were taken to hospitals, and two were in intensive care
Head-on accident looks suspiciously like a deliberate suicide attack on first responders by a taxi driver.
