I called 112 and followed the taxi. And the car had already left on General Efremov Street, there hit the Ford Focus and turned into a dead end. I stopped, ran up, opened the door and tried to pull the driver out. But I was not able to do this,” said a local resident, reports Podmoskov'ye Segodnya.

Then the offender appeared on Poluboyarova Street, where he flew into the fence and was detained.

“The man closed himself in the car from us, sat with crazy eyes while we got him out of there. And then we kept him until the traffic police officers, the police and the ambulance arrived,” said Igor. According to him, the taxi driver did not even have documents for the car.
