Dump truck driver who hit nurse busted for suspended license

Cops have busted a dump truck driver who ran over a nurse as she rode her bike on the Lower East Side, police said Thursday.

Juan Cosme, 45, was behind the wheel of a Dump Masters 10-wheeler when he hit the 50-year-old woman at Stanton and Ridge Sts. at 10:15 p.m. on Wednesday night, cops said.

Medics rushed her to Bellevue Hospital Center with serious injuries. Police sources said the woman may lose one of her legs.

The 50-year-old nurse was riding on Ridge St. when the Dump Masters 10-wheeler going east on Stanton St. turned right and hit her just after 10:15 p.m., police sources said.

Investigators believe the nurse may have been going the wrong way down Ridge, which is a one-way street, based on where she was struck, sources said.

Cosme stayed at the scene and is charged with driving with a suspended license.
