A 20-year-old man is stable after undergoing surgery on his arm that was partially severed as he waved out a car window at two girls in Western Australia.
He was a passenger in a Nissan utility that drove past two girls washing their vehicle at a car wash in Bunbury, south of Perth, last night, police said today.
“He put his arm out the window and waved at the girls as the Nissan made a right hand turn at the intersection, and was struck by a Toyota Hi-Lux twin-cab vehicle,” a police statement said.
“His left arm was partially severed and doctors believe the limb may need to be amputated.”
The man was transferred from Bunbury Regional Hospital overnight and underwent surgery in Royal Perth Hospital this morning, a hospital spokeswoman said.
“He has just had surgery, it went well and he is in a stable condition,” she said.
She could not confirm whether his arm had been saved due to patient confidentiality.
Police are calling for witnesses to the accident.
I wanted to post a picture along with this story, but sadly there are no pictures of girls in bikinis washing cars on the Internet.
