I imagine they were both texting at the time as this seems to be on the increase, time to remove the phone from road users caught doing this whilst driving.

"A taxi and a car crashed into each other before hitting a wall. "

Sounds like it was a spontaneous event with no human involvement at all.

Maybe "Two drivers managed to crash their vehicles into each other and subsequently a wall" would be closer to the truth?

Or the two empty vehicles had been parked without their handbrakes on.
