Police in Cincinnati are searching for a guy who crashed into a gas station on Sunday, flipped his car then climbed out the passenger-side window and tried to hail a TAXI.

It's because a cab just happened to be passing by and it actually stopped. But apparently the cabbie realized what was going on and wouldn't let him in. Then it sped off...with the guy clinging to the side of it!

The cab drives off at :55, and there's a slow-motion replay of the crash at 1:00.  NOTE:  There's no sound.
