    HEHEEHEHEE. Now that is funny. And I fully sympathize with the cabbie. Who'da thunk it eh? Guess he should ask the FD to provide a letter of explaination for the insurance dorks though.

    From what I've seen of most cabs, I'm not surprised the Brothers confused it with the wreck.

    I guess it was not emphasized in training the adage:

    1. This happened in Sweden.

    2. It happened to be reported on a UK website, hence the cost of the damage was in listed in Pounds, not Kronas.

    As it turned out later one of the victims had a not immediately apparent, complicated (near paralysing) neck fracture so the FFs had choosen the right approach by cutting off the roof and extraditing them while immobilized as much as possible.
    So they won the argument in the end.

    wonder how far away the accident was that the cab driver wasn't able to get back and talk to any of the fireman and let them know what happened?! bet he'll never try to be a good samaritan again!

    How about if they had been in a patrol car and the patrol car got cut up.

    THAT WOULD BE VERY FUNNY !
