Accident One: A Close Call in Midtown Manhattan

On Monday morning, a 40-year-old female driver, navigating her SUV northbound on Third Avenue, swerved to avoid colliding with another vehicle. In a harrowing sequence of events, her vehicle veered off the road at East 58th Street, striking a 22-year-old male pedestrian and crashing into sidewalk scaffolding. The impact, captured on video, left the SUV ensnared in the wreckage of the scaffolding, painting a stark picture of the chaos unleashed in mere moments. The young man was quickly transported to New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center with a leg injury, the severity of which remains unclear. Miraculously, no criminality was suspected in the crash, and the driver remained at the scene, cooperating with law enforcement.
