Bicyclist Hit By Truck and Killed in East Williamsburg
According to police, a 30-year-old man was struck and killed by a truck on Meserole Street and Morgan Avenue last night around midnight. Cops have determined that the man was biking alongside a flatbed truck that made a right turn; as the truck turned, it hit the biker. His identity hasn't been revealed yet, pending family notification.
Police canvassed the area and found the truck parked on Scholes between Morgan and Bogart. They say the investigation is ongoing.
The accident comes on the heels of another fatal bike crash in that area back in August, when a professional dancer named Erica Abbott fell off her bike and was hit by a car on Powers Street and Bushwick Avenue.
Businesses in the immediate area didn't know anything about the accident when we called, and cops wouldn't release us the victim's name, but we'll update when more information comes through.
