According to the Press & Journal, Innes Mackie needed to be cut free of his taxi following a collision with a trailer on the A947 highway in Scotland as he took two young pupils to school in October 2009.
As a result, the driver had to be airlifted to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary - a large institution which is managed by the NHS Grampian Trust and has around 900 beds - and has now been awarded a sum of personal injury damages for his ordeal.
Mr Mackie told the news source of the effect the crash has had on his day-to-day life and stated that he does not envisage ever being able to return to his old job.
"I'll need a knee replacement in the future and I'm not looking forward to that," he added.
