The driver of the taxi, who crashed into the street lights at the intersection in Taufusi, has been charged with careless driving.
This was confirmed by Police Superintendent, Auapa’au Logoitino Filipo.
A bystander told the Sunday Samoan that the taxi was speeding and just went straight for the street lights during the early hours of yesterday morning.
“I heard the brakes screeching and when he finally came to a stop after crashing into the street lights, he exited with what appeared to be a shot gun, but I was not certain."
“He then took off and I called the Police to report the matter."
Workers repaired the lights yesterday and they were worked into the night.
