A collision between two bicyclists — one going the wrong way — in the Amsterdam Avenue bike lane around 105th Street at 12:47 PM, sent one man to the hospital in critical condition, police told WSR. Here is their full report.
“On Thursday, June 30, 2022, at approximately 12:47 PM, police responded to a 911 call of a bicycle collision in the vicinity of northbound Amsterdam Avenue and West 105 Street, within the confines of the 24 Precinct.
“Upon arrival, officers observed a male in his 30’s, unconscious and unresponsive, lying on the roadway with head trauma. EMS responded to the location and transported the victim to Mount Sinai West, where he is listed in critical condition.
“Further investigation by the NYPD Highway District’s Collision Investigation Squad determined that a 43-year-old male was riding a bicycle, traveling southbound on Amsterdam Avenue in the northbound bicycle lane, when he collided head on with an E-Bike operated by the unidentified male individual, traveling northbound in the bike lane. The 43-year-old male remained at the scene and refused medical attention. There are no arrests and the investigation remains ongoing.”
