A TAXI driver has been taken to hospital after three men stole his car and set it on fire early this morning.
Albury Police said the taxi had been driving along Kaitler's Road about 1am when the three passengers inside assaulted the driver, removed him from the car and drove off.
A witness travelling west on the same road called emergency services and an ambulance took the taxi driver to Albury Hospital soon after.
Police were called to the scene and soon after received a call about a car fire in Murphy Street, Springdale Heights.
They arrived at the scene to find the taxi well alight.
The fire brigade attended and police later visited a Springdale Heights home, where two men were arrested.
They are currently assisting police with their inquiries.
