Local taxi destroyed in Saturday evening accident

Well known and easily recognizable “Quacker Jack” or  “Mad Jack’s Taxi”,   adorned with numerous ducks, geese and recently a gramophone speaker to amplify his well known duck call, was destroyed in a Saturday evening accident at the corner of Nash and Old Nash Road.

Witnesses report that the taxi was T-Boned while traveling east on Nash Road.  Jack was conscious and talking immediately after the accident. He was transported via Seward Volunteer Ambulance to Providence Seward Medical Center. Witness report that he was carrying two passengers who appeared uninjured.


The driver of the other vehicle reportedly fled the scene on foot in the direction of Salmon Creek Road and was apprehended a short time later  by law enforcement officers.

  1. What a terrible accident! I hope Quacker Jack will have a speedy recovery, and will be able to get another taxi festooned with golden ducks and swans back in action again. He brought a lot of smiles and fun to Seward, turning an ordinary taxi service into something very, very special and unique.

    Best wishes!
