Pedestrian chases Chicago taxi after apparently getting hit in dashcam video

January 29, 2014|By Mick Swasko, @swasko

A dashboard camera captured a chase this afternoon downtown.

A video uploaded to YouTube Wednesday afternoon appears to show a man chasing a yellow taxi through the street after he was apparently bumped by the taxi. The video's description states that the video was taken just after noon Wednesday, and notes the taxi's number. 

The video does not show the contact between the pedestrian and the vehicle, but it does show a foot chase down the street as the taxi makes a turn off Michigan Avenue. The video description states that the alleged contact happened at Michigan Avenue and Lake Street. 

UPDATE: A video posted to YouTube Thursday, titled "Taxi #1258 the true version," appears to be taken at the same time as the original video. It's unclear if it is, in fact, actually the dashcam inside the taxi in question.
