The Jamaica Constabulary Force says they are still searching for a taxi driver who recently led them on a high-speed chase through sections of the Corporate Area in Jamaica with a number of passengers at his mercy in the process.

The vehicle was reportedly heading to Half-Way Tree when the incident unfolded as the driver made his getaway.

The incident was captured by one of the passengers on her phone, and posted on social media.

Watch the video below.

 

The just over two-minute video showed the female screaming and asking the driver to release her from the speeding vehicle, but all her calls were ignored.

Amidst it all, another female passenger who was in the vehicle and heard her co-passenger's pleas tried to calm her.

Jamaica's police said they have seen the video and have called on passengers to be careful about their choices of public passenger vehicles.
