The man who was critically injured by a cab last week remains in critical condition. Doctors said Friday there is no chance he will recover from his injuries.

Daniel Firkins was at Honore and North Avenue last Friday when he tried to hail a cab to go to school.

Police say a cab stopped, the graduate student leaned in, and the driver suddenly drove off.

Firkins is hospitalized with head injuries and crushed ribs.

Police are still searching for the driver who was in a white cab with blue stripes.
