RYE, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a taxi driver in a northern suburb of New York City is accused of stabbing a passenger during an argument that ended with the vehicle crashing into a tree.

The driver was taken into police custody after the violent incident early Friday in Rye, in Westchester County.

Authorities say the argument involved the route the cabbie was taking. The driver told police that the passenger had refused to pay.

The passenger was treated at a hospital for wounds from a pocket knife.

The cabbie, who worked for a Westchester taxi company, was charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon. He’s being held on $100,000 bail.
