Cab driver crashes, dies after angry pedestrian struck him with hockey stick

A pedestrian used a hockey stick to bash a livery driver in the head just before the driver died in a crash in Chelsea on Saturday, the NYPD says. Kohji Kosugi, 39, was charged with manslaughter on Sunday evening.

The assailant, described as in his 30s, fled on foot, police said. Police said the suspect hit the driver over the head and ran away. NY Federation of Taxi Drivers speaks out on incident: Tolk then returned to his vehicle and drove south on 11th Avenue, eventually making his way to Horatio Street and West Street in the West Village where he struck a median.

The man was rushed to Lenox Hill Hospital where he died.

Police found the suspect by checking surveillance footage at Chelsea Piers, and were able to identify him because of the hockey stick, CBS New York reports.
