NEW YORK (PIX11) – A British tourist who lost her leg after being hit by a cab in August won’t see any charges for the driver responsible.
On Thursday, district attorney spokeswoman Joan Vollero announced that criminal charges “cannot be filed” in the case.
Witnesses say Faysal Himon, 24, intentionally drove his taxi onto the curb after an argument with a bike messenger on August 20.
Sian Green was vacationing with her friend when she was hit near Rockefeller Plaza.
Green’s attorney said the assistant district attorney informed him there was a lack of evidence regarding the driver’s intent.
He added that Green continues to recover from multiple injuries back home in the UK and isn’t letting this news affect her positive spirit, unbelievable strength and incredible poise.
