The short clip shows a fuming female motorist apparently hitting the taxi driver and further engaging him, even as he slowly limped out of his vehicle so he could sit on the sidewalk to gasp for air. Her male companion, meanwhile, just looked on as the whole incident unfolded.
The taxi driver was later identified as 52-year-old stroke survivor Virgilio Doctor, who said he was already feeling dizzy when it happened, which could explain why he suddenly left his vehicle unattended to sit on the sidewalk. Doctor was also quick to admit that he might have angered the female motorist when he honked at them as he tried to overtake their vehicle.
Because of what occurred, Doctor has decided to file charges against the female identified as Cherish Sharmaine Interior, 31. The charges include physical injury, unjust vexation, and malicious mischief.
The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board for its part is already conducting its own investigation. Needless to say, the video has already gone viral with over 12 million views and netizens have tons to say about the issue:
