NEW YORK (AP) — The cab driver who plowed into and seriously injured a British tourist says driving a New York City taxi is too stressful.

Mohammed Faysal Himon tells the New York Post that (http://bit.ly/13HS3V9 ) “I need a more suitable job.”

He says Tuesday’s accident happened after he accelerated to get around a bicyclist who he says pounded on his car and yelled at him.

The 23-year-old victim, Sian Green, lost a leg in the accident outside Rockefeller Center. Quick-thinking good Samaritans, including TV’s “Dr. Oz,” rushed to her aid.

Himon says he didn’t remember much after accelerating until he saw Green’s leg by his cab.

He has been issued a summons and police and the Manhattan district attorney are investigating. The newspaper reports that city authorities are taking steps to suspend his license.
