A pedestrian was seriously injured after a car jumped the curb and pinned her against a pole in midtown Manhattan

A female pedestrian suffered severe injury  after being struck by a car in New York yesterday afternoon. The woman was standing on a sidewalk  at the intersection of  East 49th Street and Second Avenue in Manhattan, NYC, when an out of control driver jumped the curb and pinned her against a light pole.  According to witnesses the victim’s clothes were completely ripped and she was lying on the street almost naked and severely injured.  Moments after the crash, doctors from a nearby emergency clinic ran to the scene of the accident and covered the victim with blankets until EMS arrived and transported her to the hospital.
