A New York taxi driver who hit a British tourist severing part of her leg has been released from police custody, according to the New York Daily News.
The driver, named locally as 24-year-old Faysal Kabir Mohammad Himon, was reportedly issued a summons for being an unauthorised driver before being set free.
He is quoted as telling reporters that "it was an accident" and that he is "in shock".
The newspaper also reports that he has a number of previous driving offences on his record, including one for running a red light and for speeding.
