An unthinkable crash this morning on I-95 in Mamaroneck, NY left a Bronx man without part of his leg.

About 7:30 a.m., an accident occurred on I-95 northbound just south of Exit 18A, Fennimore Road, resulting in minor injuries.

Ten minutes later, 26-year-old Sylvia Cabrera of New Rochelle, NY steered around the accident, lost control of her Nissan Altima and struck a man changing a flat tire of his Toyota Corolla on the interstate shoulder.

The impact amputated the lower left leg of Fernando Roman, 47, of the Bronx. Emergency crews transported the victim to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla for treatment.

The accidents backed up morning commuter traffic and closed northbound lanes of I-95 for nearly three hours while emergency crews and state police cleared the accident scene.

The accident remains under investigation, but state police filed no charges against Cabrera at this time.
