Another friend of the victim was getting a lift home with a friend from a night out in Newcastle in the early hours of that morning.
In his statement Robert Sedgewick said it was raining heavily during their journey home.
At an inquest on Wednesday, coroner Eric Armstrong recorded two verdicts of accidental death caused by multiple injuries to both Jasir Uddin Ahmed, who was driving the taxi and Mr Robson, who was the front seat passenger.

He also said Mr Ahmed was driving in an over cautious manner because he didn't know the way, he was braking before corners to be safe and Mr Fletcher didn't feel that the driver was speeding at any time.
A leading member of Tynedale Rugby Club first XV, he left the sport to concentrate on his new business as an electrician, but had just agreed to coach at Border Park at Kielder when he died.

Police officers attending the scene carried out a full investigation but limited physical evidence meant a reconstruction was difficult.
Mr Robson (29) was well known in the Tynedale area for his rugby prowess.
The crash occurred following a stag night in Consett, where a group of friends Nike Uptempo Black 2016
decided to share a taxi home.
The car's driver said he thought he had seen another car in the ditch and so they went to get torches and returned to Beukley Bank to check.
Andrew Robson was a passenger in a taxi returning from an ex teammate's stag party when the vehicle ploughed into a tree.
Brought up on the family farm in Falstone, he lived in Bellingham and left behind a young wife, Laura, and a nine month old baby boy.
However, the exact cause Nike Vapormax Laceless of the crash could not be found, due to limited evidence at the scene and the absence of any eye witnesses.

He and his friends called the police and ambulance service and waited at the scene until the emergency services arrived.

Although he could not see the passenger's face he said he was very upset because the Derwentside taxi plate indicated to him that this may have been one of his pals from the stag night.

However, tyre marks and damage to both the car and the tree it hit, indicated the car had driven straight off the road and hit the tree at high speed.
