A taxi driver whose vehicle was overtaken and used in a south Tel Aviv terror attack on Monday morning told reporters that he exited the car after being stabbed in the hand.

The terrorist got into the taxi at 2 Salameh Street, and told the driver to take him to the Central Bus Station. After one block he produced a knife, and told the driver to get out of the car.

The driver said that he grabbed the terrorist's hand that was holding the knife, but after being injured he jumped out of the car, and the terrorist took off down the street.

When the driver spoke to reporters his hand was bandaged, and he said that police had questioned him for approximately an hour before letting him go.
