In New York, a bizarre accident occurred involving three vehicles. A man was driving his car on a relatively narrow one way street. Another vehicle was backing out of a driveway on the right side of the road, when the operator of the car on the street noticed him. The driver swerved to the left to avoid being struck by the car backing out of the driveway. At the same time, on the left side of the street and man had just completed buckling his small child into the back seat of an SUV. His wife was seated in the front passenger seat. Unfortunately, one of the mans legs was outside of the SUV when the operator of the moving vehicle swerved to avoid the car backing out of the driveway. When the car swerved to the left, it struck the passenger side of the SUV, traumatically amputating the leg of the father, causing injury to the mother, but thankfully, the baby was unharmed.
