A woman crossing Second Avenue Saturday morning was struck and dragged by a cement mixer, severing her leg below the knee.
Ernesto Mejia, 52, of Jackson Heights, was turning right on the avenue from 68th Street in a Queens Ready Mix Concrete Company truck about 10 a.m. when he hit a 63-year-old woman who was crossing Second Avenue, the driver said.
“I didn’t see her. I didn’t see anything,” Mejia said after the crash. After he made the turn, a pedestrian waved for him to stop, that’s when he heard the woman’s screams.
He said that the woman was lying under the cement mixer in agony when he came to her aid.
