Man might lose arm after SUV crash

- Thomas Tracy

An SUV passenger injured his right arm so badly in a Manhattan scaffoldin­g crash Saturday that doctors may have to amputate it, police said.

The red Chevrolet Tahoe was nearing the corner of E. 59th St. and Third Ave. around 7 a.m. when the driver lost control of the wheel, cops said.

The Chevy struck a fire hydrant and then the scaffoldin­g, sending a mess of metal poles tumbling down onto the mangled vehicle.

Medics rushed the 27-year-old man to New York-Presbyteri­an Hospital Weill Cornell with a severe arm injury that could require amputation, police said.

A woman in her 30s was also in the car, but not injured, cops said. It’s not clear who was driving the Chevy.

There have been no arrests.
