New York taxi crash amputee gets £116k payout

A woman has received $150,000 (£116,000) in compensation six years after she had to have part of her leg amputated when she was hit by a New York taxi.

Sian Green-Lord had been visiting the city with a friend when the vehicle mounted the kerb in Manhattan in 2013.

The 29-year-old, from Leicester, has since had a daughter and got married.

Taxi driver, Faysal Himon, who has never faced criminal charges, blames a cyclist with whom he was having an argument just before the crash.
