In a video posted on YouTube, a witness to last Thursday’s deadly motorcycle crash recounted what happened and said the motorcyclist “wanted to run away” after the crash.
Parts of the audio are a little unclear, but the witness recounted the moment of the crash as local artist Thomas McAnulty was crossing 96th street from South to North and the Eastbound motorcyclist hit him. The motorcyclist did stay on the scene after the crash, police said (the witness in the video indicates that he made sure he remained on the scene). McAnulty was pronounced dead on Saturday.
As of earlier this week, no one had been arrested and the investigation was ongoing. The video was first posted on Gothamist. McAnulty’s family has asked for any more tips about the crash from witnesses.
The video, which we’ve posted below, does show the blood at the scene and could be too graphic for some readers.
