"This is way ugly," Officer Stuart Palmiter radioed back to police. "I saw a cab was buried in the room," he told the Oregonian after the incident. The black-and-white Radio Cab had driven directly through a bamboo bush and into Room 115. The car reportedly drove right on top of Toubin, who was still in bed.

The taxi became stuck in the room and had to by lifted off of the DJ by three hotel maintenance men and Officer Palmiter.

There will be two benefit concerts for Toubin at both Motor City and Home Sweet Home in New York City on Friday night, Dec. 9. Toubin's family has now set up a PayPal account at ihearttoubin@gmail.com where you can send donations directly to the DJ.

"As he was carried into an ambulance, he was able to talk, but completely covered in blood," Lt. Rich Tyler said of the DJ. The car had apparently pinned Toubin against his hotel room wall.
