Rockefeller Center accident involving Cabbie, cyclists, pedestrians
Probably many have read it in today's news:
"A cabbie feuding with a bike messenger stepped on the gas and jumped the curb outside Rockefeller Center this morning, severing at least one foot of a beautiful female British tourist as horrified witnesses — including TV’s “Dr. Oz” — rushed to help, officials and witnesses said.
"“The hood of his car was so close to me, I could touch it. I told him to stop, he gets angry, he honks his horn, and he accelerates, and that’s it — I’m on the hood of the car, and the woman is under his car,’’ said the cyclist, who refused to give his name."
Here is what I don't understand:
"Law-enforcement sources said the cabbie who hit her, Mohammed Himon, was likely to be slapped with multiple summonses for the crash but not criminally charged."
Why did they decide immediately that he'll not be criminally charged?
