A United Parcel Service driver from Bayonne was badly injured in accident in Staten Island when he was pinned against his truck Monday morning, the Staten Island Advance reported.
The newspaper identified the UPS driver as Tom Ryan, 40, and reported that witnesses said Ryan’s one leg was severed in the accident and his other leg was also injured.
Ryan was unloading packages from the back of the truck when he was struck by a Toyota Camry in front of 2044 Hylan Blvd. in Grant City, just after 9 a.m., according to the UPS spokeswoman and officials, SILive.com reported.
The driver of the Camry told police that he swerved to avoid a pedestrian, then lost control and struck Ryan, SILive.com reported. No charges were filed, it was reported.
Ryan was taken to Staten Island University North Hospital and then he was transferred to Bellevue Hospital, FDNY sources said, the New York Post reported.
“As of right now, Tom is going to make it. He’s going to live, but that’s all I know at this point,” a UPS representative told the Post.
