A San Diego cab driver who injured 35 people after driving his cab into a crowd will not be charged criminally.

The police department says there is insufficient evidence to charge 52-year-old Sam Hassan Daly.

He injured 35 people when he drove his taxi into a crowd outside the Stingaree on Feb. 12. A 45-year-old patron whose right leg was pinned against a wall has had several reconstructive surgeries. [Source]

The driver is suspected of falling asleep at the wheel. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune the investigation took three months. Several civil suits have been filed by a few of the victims.
