Man might lose arm after SUV crash
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.
