Legless man hit by car in Harlem
A homeless panhandler with no legs was critically injured yesterday when he was struck by two cars in Harlem, police said. Donald Samuels, 33, broke several bones, including his pelvis, and was in critical condition last night at Harlem Hospital Center, police said. A witness told police Samuels was in the middle of East 125th Street, near Third Avenue, when was hit by a white van heading west just before 6 a.m.
The impact sent Samuels into the path of traffic heading the opposite direction, police said, and that’s when Samuels was hit by a Lincoln Town Car.
