NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say a livery cab driver has died after an angry pedestrian struck him in the head with a hockey stick and the driver crashed the car.

Police arrested Kohji Kosugi of Manhattan on a manslaughter charge Sunday.

Police say the 68-year-old Toyota Camry livery cab driver was hit in the head by Kosugi late Saturday while the driver was stopped at a Manhattan intersection.

The driver returned to his vehicle, drove for several blocks and struck a median.

He was identified as Randolph Tolk of West New York, New Jersey. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Police did not give a motive for the attack. Information on Kosugi's lawyer wasn't immediately available.
