A taxi driver who mistook a walkway for an auto exit managed to jettison his cab on the stairs today at the Market and Church Safeway.
Tom Nguyen, a manager at Vina Cab, told SF Weekly that driver Tseo Tran is "new to the job." Nguyen said the tenderfoot driver "on his way out, didn't know that wasn't an exit." The result was a marooned taxi and internet immortality.
Paul Rose, a spokesman for the Municipal Transportation Agency, says the investigation into just what happened is ongoing. Nguyen, however, chalks it up to simple inexperience.
Tran, his manager concludes, "is really very sorry."
