A woman was crossing 23rd street at 1st Ave. in Manhattan, on her way to work, when she was hit by a Mack truck making a left hand turn from 1st Ave. onto 23rd Street. At that intersection there are at least three large "yield to pedestrian traffic" signs that the truck should have seen, but failed to see.
As a result of being hit by the truck, she was knocked to the ground where she suffered a fracture to her left wrist; was knocked unconscious, and had cuts and lacerations to her forehead. Her fractured wrist required surgery with internal fixators and external fixators to hold the bones in place while they healed. She remained out of work for six weeks.
